We have finally had time to update news and projects information, not least as we are always busy, so, for a May 2023 update on what we have been doing, see below and visit the Projects page.
We have had opportunities to be involved in research and commercial projects, all of an interesting nature and current and recent activities we thought you may be interest in are:
Dr Simon Bray was asked to be on the panel of a one day seminar run by Greenship to provide understanding of shipping and pollution effects on marine ecosystems at Hempel headquarters, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Providing a background in marine ecology and pollution effects, Simon spoke on antifoul impacts and the inclusion of biodiversity goals in future planning of shipping impact management. This is by no means an easy task; it is a PhD subject in its own right. But, it was notable that members of the shipping industry and antifoul producers and users were evidently aware of the growth in public awareness of pollution in aquatic systems and that this, amongst other aspects is a driver for change and better management. Greenship is promoting exploration of more sustainable approaches to shipping activity, the home of over 80% of global trade.
