In recent years Marena was involved in several projects related to the development of antifouling procedures, developments of material, study of environmental impacts and general product development.
Paints and coatings protect surfaces against weathering, water, sunlight, corrosion and amongst many other impacts also against biofouling.
Antifouling paints help to protect marine structures and ship hulls against growth of marine organisms on the surface (biofouling).
While conventional protection coatings include substantial amounts of biocides, our experience in this field led us to the firm belief that a substantial reduction of biocidal materials and even better the absolute non-toxic solution is possible. We provided thorough analysis of biocide release rates, biocide concentracions around European shipyards and modelled distributions of biocides in the marine environment.
New results of a Black Carbon measurement campaign submitted by Germany. The results show that the new marine 2020 0.50% sulfur fuels may contain a large fraction of aromatic compounds, which have a direct impact on Black Carbon emissions. Download the PDF here:
