Wasser 3.0 campaign clears up

Many people talk and write about it, more and more research groups see it as a major research task, but what exactly is so bad about microplastics? Where does it come from, why does it not go away or only slowly, and what does it do with the environment once it has arrived there?
Questions about questions.

In our new campaign we will be dealing with the topic of microplastic pollution more precisely and intensively and presenting our solution of Wasser 3.0.
