We are thrilled to announce that the official website of the PAPILLONS project has been launched today!
What is the upcoming website about?
Since plastic is an important commodity in farming, there is about 2 Mt polymers are converted to Agricultural Plastics (APs) annually in Europe.
During use and end-of-life, some of these agricultural plastics degrade and generate fragments including micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs) that can accumulate in soil on a transitory or permanent basis. The long-term impacts of this pollution are unknown.
With this new website our goal is to limit this gap by providing information from our research on Plastic in Agricultural Production: Impacts, Lifecycles and LONg-term Sustainability. We aim to build and maintain a community of knowledge on the topic of plastic pollution in agricultural soils and the first step to do so is by creating this website.
We aim to build a “one-stop-shop” of easily digestible information on plastic pollution in agricultural soils.
We want to see the community grow and naturally, we would love to hear from you, so thank you in advance for reaching out and keeping in touch with us!
If you are interested in the topic, then make sure to check back often!
