IT’S NOT JUST THE OCEANS: MICROPLASTIC POLLUTION IS ALL AROUND US
Apple is likely to stop producing iPhone X smartphones, according to Mirabaud analyst Neil Campling. The oversupply of chips and high prices are the reason, he says.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, or TSMC, the world’s largest semiconductor foundry company, is facing a problem with an oversupply of chips, and the company’s stock was down 6.3 percent on Friday.
Because research on microplastics on land and in freshwater is still in its infancy, there are no accurate figures on the extent of the problem, but some studies have suggested there are more microplastics on land than there are in our oceans.
Globally, more than 330 million metric tons of plastics is produced each year, leaving potential sources of microplastic pollution all around us.
