Scientific committees: EU-wide restriction to reduce microplastic pollution
SEAC has adopted its opinion to ban microplastics in products such as cosmetics, detergents, fertilisers.
The Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) has adopted its opinion on a landmark restriction proposal, which would ban microplastics in products such as cosmetics, detergents, fertilisers and could lead to a ban of its use as soft infill on artificial turf sports pitches. It would prevent the release of 500 000 tonnes of microplastics into the environment over 20 years.
