Marine Biofouling Webinar Series

08 October 2020

Are you developing the next best antifouling solution? Perhaps you are looking for such a solution? If so, this webinar series is for you.  

Biofouling control on vessel hulls is receiving plenty of attention with recent changes in commercial vessel activity patterns, together with an increasing spotlight on vessel efficiency, fuel consumption, and bio-security.

However, increasing pressure to decrease the reliance on biocides in antifouling coatings is providing antifouling coating manufacturers with both compliance issues and technology development opportunities.

This series of webinars is designed to inform cross-sector participants on the challenges faced under the current regulatory framework for producing efficacious antifouling coatings, as well as explore novel antifouling technology development opportunities under this legislation.

Bringing together antifouling technology users and developers, these webinars present an ideal platform to discuss new ideas and concepts, with the potential for future collaborative projects on marine biofilm control technologies, either directly funded or via applications to funding bodies such as Innovate UK, National Research Foundation (Singapore), NBIC UK and SNBC, Singapore.
