Do microplastics evaporate with the host water? Then in a condensing water filtration system does it precipiate with the filtered water?

So, when you filter microfiber and plastics from wash water, how can you safely dispose of it? Won’t it just go back into landfill?

15,000 Tons of debris removed each time.
Amy Green

I am working with a team from UM Center for Environmental Science to build an entire curriculum unit for two local school districts on issues related the plastic pollution. These resources will be excellent support for our project
