Toward Recycling of Marine Debris - Analysis of Microplastics Using FTIR and EDX -

In addition to microplastics (very small plastic particles) drifting in seawater, marine debris also includes relatively large pieces of plastic generated by the breakup of plastic products by ultra violet radiation and other external factors, and small pieces of fishing gear like fishing lines. In recent years, it has been reported that the copper used in the protective coating on the surface of fishing nets adversely affects fish.
In this article, we introduce an example of analysis, using FTIR and EDX, of fishing nets actually collected as marine debris.
