Keynote: "Quantification of microplastic in environmental matrixes"


by Jes Vollertsen, Professor of Environmental Engineering and leads the section of Water and Environment at Aalborg University, Denmark

Microplastic is everywhere – in our water, air, soil, and food. It is an emergent issue threatening human and environmental health. Little is known on the occurrence and fate of microplastic, partly because the issue is new and partly because microplastic is rather difficult to analyze for. In this emerging research field, AAU has established a strong laboratory for detecting microplastic, including acquiring two Agilent Cary’s 620/670 FTIR Imaging systems with 128 pixel FPA’s. This presentation will address how we use FTIR imaging to detect microplastic down to the a few micrometers in size. 

Jes Vollertsen is Professor of Environmental Engineering and leads the section of Water and Environment at Aalborg University, Denmark. He has primarily worked with biological, chemical and physical processes in polluted urban and rural aquatic systems. He leads a research group on microplastic consisting of 5 full-time microplastic researchers and affiliated students and lab technicians. The main focus of the microplastic research is on developing and improving analytical methods for its quantification in environmental matrixes. He has authored many scientific publications, here of 95 published in Web of Science listed publications.
