We are developing technology that can help to quantify the concentration of microplastic pollution in our oceans and lakes


The world oceans are threatened by an increasing level of plastic debris that is disposed of improperly each year.  With the vast size of the ocean, and the limited amount of funding available to explore the levels of debris, it is very difficult for us to quantify and determine the extent of the problem.
