This microplastics special issue compiled by Trends in Analytical Chemistry supports many of the SDGs, namely SDGs 3 (good health and well-being), 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
This event primarily focusses on SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), exploring the technical and engineering challenges of addressing all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.
This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.
This study compares different microplastic sampling methods for water, sediment and biota. This supports SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research) 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
