    About This Project

    The growth of algae, barnacles, bacteria, and other marine life onto salt and fresh water boats damages the environment. It also increases the weight of boats leading to more fuel use. Copper has been used to reduce marine life growth on boats, but is toxic.
    This project will:
    1) Develop a new safe material to coat surfaces placed in water to reduce marine life growth and clean the environment, and
    2) Test such surfaces using real-life conditions
