Biofouling, the Underwater Battle of Science and Nature

February 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC-7

Free

Join Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s (PNNL) next Community Science and Technology Seminar presented by George Bonheyo.

Biofouling is the unwanted accumulation of living organisms and organic matter on a wet surface, such as a boat hull or drainpipe. Scientists at PNNL are working to solve the “five C’s” of biofouling: Costs, carbon, corrosion, continuity, and critters. Biofouling increases fuel and maintenance costs, increases carbon emissions, accelerates corrosion, stops equipment from working, and transports invasive or disease-causing species. One outcome of PNNL research is the invention of a non-toxic coating, called SLIC, that prevents organisms from attaching to surfaces.
