Growth of algae on offshore structures causes fouling, which inhibits efficient operation, and damages the body of marine vessels. To prevent this, research has been focused toward offshore platform coatings, which are antifouling biocide coatings. On application of the coatings, biocides are released, which prevent the growth of microorganisms on the surface of the offshore platform. However, such biocides can negatively impact the natural aquatic ecosystem causing death of marine life. To address this issue, newly developed solutions release the bare minimum quantity (only around 5% to 10% of existing formulations) of biocides, which will cause negligible damage to marine surroundings. More materials are being studied in this space across the globe with sufficient funding provided by regional governments.

The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints.

The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
