New research project aims to reduce biofouling

Integrating sustainable practices into its day-to-day operations, Almouj Marina at The Wave, Muscat in Oman has teamed-up with researchers from Sultan Qaboos University (SQU), Oman’s only public university, in a unique project to develop technologically enhanced, nontoxic coatings to be used on boats, submerged structures and industry equipment. 

Centered on nanotechnology, the study aims to identify environmentally friendly methods that can reduce the impact of biofouling on waterways, marine life, maintenance costs and fuel consumption.
