HANNOVER MESSE 2020,
20 - 24 April
Drag Reduction and Antifouling with a Novel Bionic Coating
Approx. 90% of the worldwide international trade is covered by ships. However, ships cause severe damage to the environment: According to a study by the University of Delaware, ship exhaust into the atmosphere is responsible for up to 60,000 deaths per year since 2013 already. In addition, large quantities of highly toxic substances that are meant to avoid biofouling of the ships’ surfaces are released into the water. Furthermore, huge amounts of energy are wasted due to ship hull friction against the water.
Three key problems which ships are facing are related to the fact that the ship hull is in contact with water:
