The occurrence of plastic contamination in sediments collected in the area of Pianosa Island was investigated in 2015 by collecting 20 sediment samples along a 25 km-long transect. All sediment samples contained plastics. In terms of numerical abundance, microplastics accounted for 64.4% of the total amount found. Six polymers types were recognized through FT-IR spectroscopy.

Abstract

The occurrence of plastic contamination in sediments collected in the area of Pianosa Island was investigated in 2015 by collecting 20 sediment samples along a 25 km-long transect. All sediment samples contained plastics. In terms of numerical abundance, microplastics accounted for 64.4% of the total amount found. Six polymers types were recognized through FT-IR spectroscopy.
