In this review, existing and emerging technologies and methods for removal of microplastics (MPs) especially from urban aquatic environments are presented. In recent years, several physical, chemical and biological technologies and methods for MP removal have been investigated and developed mainly for wastewaters. Filtration-based technologies include sand and disc filters, biofilters, membrane bioreactors and ultrafiltration methods. Coagulation/flocculation, electrocoagulation and sol-gel induced agglomeration are chemical methods investigated for MP removal. MP removal efficiencies higher than 90% have been reported for several technologies and methods. Potential methods based on activities of microorganisms, higher marine organisms and plants are also discussed.
