The chapter aims to provide a snapshot of the occurrence of a selection of MPs in different water compartments and in sludge, and their fate and behavior in the environment. The main issues related to legal, analytical and ecotoxicological aspects are also discussed along with the application of bioassays in the water environment. Finally, the most critical compounds are presented, based on a common approach used worldwide (the risk quotient RQ).

Abstract

The chapter aims to provide a snapshot of the occurrence of a selection of MPs in different water compartments and in sludge, and their fate and behavior in the environment. The main issues related to legal, analytical and ecotoxicological aspects are also discussed along with the application of bioassays in the water environment. Finally, the most critical compounds are presented, based on a common approach used worldwide (the risk quotient RQ).
