- Mon, 29 Nov 2021 19:12:23 +0000: Study outlines challenges to ongoing clean-up of burnt and unburnt nurdles along Sri Lanka’s coastline - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
When a fire broke out on the deck of the M/V XPress Pearl cargo ship on May 20, 2021, an estimated 70-75 billion pellets of preproduction plastic material, known as nurdles, spilled into the ocean and along the Sri Lankan coastline. That spill of about 1,500 tons of nurdles, many of which were burnt by the fire, has threatened marine life and poses a complex clean-up challenge. A new peer-reviewed study characterizes how the fire modified the physical and chemical properties of the nurdles and proposes that these properties affected their distribution along the coast.
