In an article published on September 21, 2017, regulatory news provider Chemical Watch informed that the Danish Environmental Protection Agency plans to investigate whether the country’s drinking water contains microplastics. Researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark, are currently developing a reliable method for measuring microplastics in drinking water. The Danish Environmental Protection Agency expects to start measurements in a few months using the new method. A full study is expected to be completed by early 2018.
