Project #14

Encapsulated biocides
Goals and objectives
This project aims at controlling the leach rate of biocides. Controlled release will lead to more effective use of biocides, thereby increasing the longevity of the coating and decreasing the environmental impact. A longer lasting hull coating will lead to economic benefits for the ship owners and allow coating manufacturers to obtain premium price for their product. The more effective use of biocides will reduce the environmental impact of hull coatings.
