Chemicals Present in Plastic Waste


Luan Nguyen*

The amount of plastic waste that ends up in the oceans each year is estimated to be 10 million metric tons, making it a component of ocean pollution that is rapidly growing and very visible. In the oceans, mercury is the metal pollutant of greatest concern; It comes from two main sources: small-scale gold mining and combustion of coal. The extent and nature of these effects are still poorly understood. Conduct a comprehensive investigation of the known and potential health effects of ocean pollution. Make these threats known to policymakers, leaders of governments, international organizations, civil society and the general public worldwide. Prioritize interventions to control and prevent seawater pollution and protect human health.
