Microplastic Removal Water
Purification System Using Microalgae
Microplastics, which are 5 mm or smaller pieces of large plastic debris that have
been broken down, adsorb and concentrate toxic substances such as heavy metals and persistent organic
pollutants (POPs) in the ocean, and are feared to have a negative impact on the ecosystem.
This service enables land-based aquaculture of fish and shellfish with microplastic-free water using a new microalgae-based microplastic removal water purification system, contributing to the production of safe, secure, and high-value-added marine products.
Microplastics are collected from the water using microalgae with characteristics such as those with the ability to secrete adhesive substances, and the purified water is used for aquaculture.
