We point out a discussion on this topic and ask ourselves if there is a solution to the global problem by developing new microplastics removal technologies as well as policy actions. The first two case studies are related with macroplastics marine litter in beaches, a third report describes a new simple sampling device for microplastics in coastal and nearshore areas, five case study assess microplastics pollution in worldwide coastal environments, sediments and catchments (India, Mexico, Australia, Europe and the Nordic Sea). Finally, different technologies to remove microplastics are highlighted as well as policy solution are listed to tackle this global problem with coordinated actions. Case studies on affordable wastewater tertiary treatments and new drinking water filtration systems are emphasized" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "This work has been supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities and the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) through the project CICLIC -subproject WETANPACK (RTI2018-097158-B-C31) and by the Generalitat Valenciana through the project ANTROPOCEN@ (PROMETEO/2018/155) and the Generalitat de Catalunya (Consolidated Research Groups 2017 SGR 1404-water and soil quality unit)" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Reproducció digital del document publicat a: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cscee.2020.100019" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "Case Studies in Chemical and Environmental Engineering, 2020, vol. 2, art.núm. 100019" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (ICRA)" , "dc.rights": "Attribution 4.0 International" , "dc.rights.uri": "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/" , "dc.subject": "Contaminants emergents en l'aigua" , "dc.subject": "Emerging contaminants in water" , "dc.subject": "Aigua -- Contaminació" , "dc.subject": "Water -- Pollution" , "dc.title": "Case studies of macro- and microplastics pollution in coastal waters and rivers: Is there a solution with new removal technologies and policy actions?" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cscee.2020.100019" , "dc.type.peerreviewed": "peer-reviewed" }
