Microplastic pollution is a global dilemma that has received an increasing amount of attention over the years due to the harmful effects being caused to the aquatic environment. Microbeads fall under the category of microplastic pollution found in many personal hygiene / beauty products. Due to its miniscule size, fish and other aquatic animals mistake the microbeads for food. Microbeads are capable of absorbing persistent organic pollutants which can affect both the fish consuming the microbead as well as humans consuming the tainted fish. Studies are being conducted to determine if Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW’s) have the technology in place in order to filter the microbeads. Environmentally favored alternatives are being considered for future implementation as well.
