Biofouling Prevention Forum
20 September 2022
Virtual Event10am-1pm CET

Biofouling Prevention Forum

Optimise your fleet: Controlling and preventing biofouling and invasive species.

In just 3 hours hear from maritime leaders and regulators on economical and environmental solutions to biofouling.

Prevent Biofouling!

Join this digital, 3-hour focused forum and be a part of the discussions for preventing biofouling, ensuring adherence to regulatory compliances, and the development of environment friendly anti-fouling products. 

Hear from experts and network with different stakeholders, researchers, and policy makers from across the maritime sector.

The Future of Low Carbon Shipping

  • The implications of biofouling have a far-reaching effect on the oceanic logistics & transportation.
  • Multiple solutions have been found to restrict biofouling; however, resistance has been one of the main factors when finding a perfect solution, given the global focus is now on protecting marine biodiversity. The IMO’s GHG emissions reduction targets state that shipping must reduce its CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030.

Overcome the Impacts of Biofouling

  • Find solutions to the major economic, environmental, and ecological impacts biofouling has on the world we live in.
  • To deter biofouling, anti-fouling paints are used to prevent the growth of marine life on the submerged surfaces. At the same time, biocidal antifouling paints are toxic to marine organisms. Meet with the solution providers who are working on developing a compound that is both economically and environmentally viable.

Regulations and Solutions

  • Uncover the latest regulations across different geographies and how they affect your business 
  • Work with the industry to tackle biofouling  and develop optimal solutions
