MICRO is a biennial international conference on plastic pollution. In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held online on 23-27 November 2020. Authors were encouraged to submit their papers to Microplastics and Nanoplastics. Here we present a growing collection of papers related to MICRO2020.

  1. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the use of disposable plastics, including medical masks, which have become a necessity in our daily lives. As these are often improperly disposed of, they represent an impor...
