EU funded project PLASTICHEAL aims at developing innovative tools to study the impact and mode of action of micro and nanoplastics on human health.
The main objectives of PLASTICHEAL are:
Humans are exposed to incidental micro and nanoplastics (MNPLs) due to their ubiquitous presence in the environment, but there is only very limited information on the potential impact of this exposure on human health. The current regulatory framework cannot ensure that incidental MNPLs present in the air, and in food and beverage products are at safe levels for the population.
PLASTICHEAL project will develop new methodologies and reliable scientific evidence for regulators to set the knowledge basis for adequate risk assessment of MNPLs.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 965196
