This project aims to determine the sources of microplastics in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and better understand the environmental effects of microplastics when biosolids from WWTPs are used as a soil amendment. A database was generated, listing businesses that are likely contributors of microplastics to WWTPs in Vancouver. The database ranks those businesses in order of priority for intervention by Metro Vancouver.
