Micro-plastics represent one of today’s major problems in terms of water pollution. Its significance has become a global interest only in the last five years, whereby it needs to be noted that the studies to date have been done primarily in the developed western world (US, Europe). The IWRS was the first in Slovenia to begin conducting these types of studies and also established the methodology for sampling and sample analysis. The methodology is still being improved in cooperation with world-famous researchers in this field (the MSFD Technical Subgroup on Marine Litter).
The travelling exhibition within the BeWater Project will be on display from 1 to 30 September 2015 in the hallway of the Vipava Local Library (Beblerjeva ulica 17, 5271 Vipava). You are cordially invited.
The Republic of Slovenia’s marine area is intensely and extremely diversely utilised. Man’s marine and land activities impact the status of the marine environment. We need to keep in mind that having a healthy and clean marine environment is a precondition for performing various activities and as such provides certain benefits for the Slovenian economy and society.
