Hello! My name is Kirill Veras. I’m from Belarus. I live in Brest city – it is beautiful and famous historical place in Belarus.Tell us what the water concern in your country is!
Belarus has a lot of lakes and rivers. The water supply of people population is of best quality. But this abundance of water around leads to overuse of water resources and lack of its quality. It can cause big problems in future.
Nowadays the microplastic pollution is becoming a macroproblem in the world scale but the responsibility is devoted to every country. What is about Belarus? In the results of the project it has been established that natural water ecosystems in our country are polluted by microplastics on the scale that it can be detected. The laboratory researches proved the toxical effect of microplastics on aquatic organisms. This result enriches the fundamental knowledge of the microplastics pollution. The creation of a special filter for collection of domestic microplastics in sinks and washing machines arose as a consequence of a huge research part of a project. The filters invented are easily used in household duties provided that owners have conscious approach.
