COP26 Managing Ships' Biofouling

18 October 2021

Biofouling is the accumulation of aquatic plants and animal organisms on surfaces and structures immersed in or exposed to the aquatic environment. Biofouling growth on ships’ hulls means an increase in drag (resistance of the ship through the water) leading to more fuel consumption, and more greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted. State-of-the-art management of biofouling will result in significant fuel efficiency gains, in addition to minimizing the transfer of invasive aquatic species to local marine environments.
