PPWG 2: Identification of the most effective equipment for the recovery of macro and microplastics from shorelines and nearshore environments

This report is intended to identify most effective equipment and strategies for the recovery of microplastics from shorelines and nearshore environment.

The report addresses the current gap in industry good practice and aims to create a valuable source of information on equipment and strategies for response to microplastics to be shared with the industry and the wider audience. Recommendations provided in this report are based on experiences gathered during the most recent microplastics (plastic pellets) spills in Norway and South Africa in 2020 and in Sri Lanka in 2021. It is important to note that research into the best techniques for plastic pellets clean-up is an ongoing venture and will be updated through more equipment trials.
