ReSource International is happy to announce that the company finalized its method development for microplastic counting in drinking water. Due to the difficulty of detecting and identifying microplastics, the method developed includes large samples as standard and uses fluorescence microscopy in laboratory quantification. Large efforts are also undertaken to quantify and prevent contamination in the sampling process, which has significantly affected most studies to date.

The project is done with the support and the participation of Orkuveita Reykjavikur, HS Orka (Reykjanes), Hafnarfjörður Municipality and Norðurorka (Akureyri).

Other water facilities are welcome to join the project and contact us for further information.
