Use of Biotechnology on Enhancing Antifouling Coating Performance

SHORT INTRODUCTION

 

I-Tech AB, the global supplier of the antifouling ingredient Selektope®, will be hosting a workshop and presentation to showcase the technology behind their award-winning product.

Selektope® is a proven and recognized antifouling ingredient used in marine paint, which helps prevent barnacle fouling, a major challenge for operations and energy efficiency in the global shipping industry. The technology behind Selektope® was discovered at the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environment Research (MISTRA) Programme for Marine Paint, a Swedish multidisciplinary research project at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.

 

Over the past twenty years, I-Tech has successfully navigated the regulatory processes associated with building an EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) regulatory dossier to ensure safe use of the active substance. This has enabled Selektope® to become one of the few active substances approved for use in marine antifouling coatings, and has helped bring antifouling coating performance under static conditions to the next level.

 

The workshop and presentation will focus on the mode of action of Selektope®, as well as new opportunities for using the technology in new building, drydocking, idling, and low biocidal loads in antifouling and fouling release coatings (FRCs). Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with Philip Chaabane, CEO, and Ulf Hansen, Senior Advisor, to discuss the challenges of biofouling and ask technical questions.

 

Join us for this informative and engaging event and learn how Selektope® can help revolutionize the antifouling industry.
