Microplastics pollution is becoming increasingly problematic due to its involvement in a myriad of health problems and its effects on natural wildlife. Water agencies across the globe are progressively implementing screening policies for drinking water to address this issue. However, this is proving to be challenging since the existing monitoring technologies are labor intensive and time-consuming with low throughput. To address the issue, we propose a new flow-through sensor that builds upon technologies that were developed during our main ERC project.

Action Updates

  • A team of 6 engineers from various R&D Departments of Arcelik / Beko has visited our group to discuss about microplastic detection in various scenarios [11.3.2024]. 

  • Bilkent News Story for our microplastic detection work and the PoC project. 

  • Our project and results on microplastics are highlighted in media.
