Plastics, Microplastics, and Nanoplastics in the Environment: Sources, Migration, Contamination, and Sustainable Management Strategies
Environmental pollutants such as microplastics and nanoplastics are becoming the most serious global environmental issue, and have been a concern of scientists, governments, and the public. They originate from plastic products and lead to dramatic environmental contamination in freshwater, ocean, land, and air.
In recent years, many researchers have determined the origins, fate, risk assessment, and management methods of microplastic pollution. However, a good deal of knowledge gaps remain. Therefore, it is urgent to launch "Plastics, Microplastics, and Nanoplastics in the Environment: Sources, Migration, Contamination, and Sustainable Management Strategies" to address the serious and widespread impact of microplastic pollution in the environment.
This topic welcomes original research, reviews, short communications, comments, perspectives, and methods papers on the basis of (macro-, micro-, and nano-) plastic pollution and waste in all fields.
Submissions to the Topic will be subject to peer review before final publication. Papers must not be submitted to any other publication at the same time. The final decision regarding paper publication will be made based on peer-review reports and Topic Editors, or the Editor-in-Chief in cases of a conflict of interest. Published full-text papers will be available online on the Topic website. We sincerely hope that you will contribute your outstanding research.
