  Dear Reader

Microplastics - a much debated and widely discussed word at the moment.
All over the world, plastic microparticles enter our waters and also the soil via a variety of pathways. As bigger plastic parts are decomposed, “secondary” microplastics are generated, while “primary” microplastics are contained for example in cosmetic products, washing and cleaning agents. Microplastics that are transported together with the wastewater flow to a well equipped sewage treatment plant (at best with HUBER equipment), are to a very large extent (far more than 90%) separated with the sewage sludge and cannot end up in the environment anymore, provided the sewage sludge is not applied to agricultural soil.

A main pathway for microplastics into the environment is by the way tyre wear. When it rains, the tyre wear particles are washed from the road, and treatment of the road run-off is a largely unsolved problem. In our report about the den HUBER Disc Filter RoDisc®, we present an innovative solution how contaminated road run-off can be treated effectively. That this works also in practice has been proven by us in Switzerland!

And the next time you are discussing the issue microplastics, you know: HUBER has solutions!
Therefore, read our interesting news!
