    Plastic resin pellets as a transport medium for toxic

    Plastic resin pellets (small granules 0.1-0.5 centimeters in diameter) are widely distributed in the ocean all over the world. They are an industrial raw material for the plastic industry and are unintentionally released to the environment both during manufacturing and transport.

    Plastic Resin Pellets as a Transport Medium for Toxic

    The high accumulation potential suggests that plastic resin pellets serve as both a transport medium and a potential source of toxic chemicals in the marine environment. Introduction Plastic resin pellets are small granules generally with the shape of a cylinder or a disk with a diameter of a few millimeters

    Plastic pellets are also lipophilic and have an extremely high affinity for POPs. The concentration of POPs in plastic resin pellets is a million times higher than in the surrounding seawater. We first observed this accumulation through on-site experimentation in 1998 (1). This is why tracking the resin pellet is so valuable. International
