Antifouling Research

 

Marine fouling causes enormous problems in the maintenance of vessels, aquaculture cages, ropes and moorings as well as intake pipelines, Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants and others structures. Countries worldwide are spending billions every year to fight biofouling using toxic compounds that kill non-target organisms and accumulate in the marine environment. The assessment of the antifouling activity should be established at different levels.
Our licensed facility provides laboratories, testing tanks and field studies to assess the antifouling activity of different products.
