EU Chemicals Agency proposes ban on deliberately added microplastics to combat pollution

HELSINKI, Jan 18 (Reuters) - The EU Chemicals Agency ECHA on Friday proposed a ban on deliberately adding microplastics to products such as cosmetics, detergents and agricultural fertilisers in the EU by 2020 to combat pollution.
