Floating PV plants are opening a new perspective on the electric energy production and have a minimal impact on the environment. However, the presence of large amounts of metals and plastics in contact with water requires a careful analysis of possible chemical pollution. We discuss in detail the interaction of polyethylene, zinc and aluminum with fresh and salty water and we conclude that effects are within the international standards and do not deserve any specific caution.
