Compared to airfreight, rail or road transportation, marine shipping is by far the most environmentally friendly way of transporting goods. However, the maritime industry still emits around four per cent of the world’s man-made CO2 emissions.

One of the best ways to reduce vessel emissions is the use of advanced antifouling hull coatings. These improve the vessel’s hydrodynamics and so reduce both fuel consumption and associated emissions. As large vessels burn fuel by the megaton, even a small reduction in fuel consumption can mean significantly lower emissions. Our antifouling coatings can reduce a vessel’s fuel consumption and associated emissions by 4-8 per cent a year.

We are now working to make our antifouling coatings even more environmentally friendly by incorporating renewable raw materials into our coating formulations. As a result, our customers should soon be able to choose Hempel coatings that are both proven to reduce vessel emissions and are produced sustainably.

The project is being run by our Antifouling Centre of Excellence in Polinya, Spain, and is sponsored by EEA Grants.

Josep Palasi, Strategic Technology Director of R&D at Hempel, comments: “For the last 30 years, we have worked consistently to drive the industry forward by developing coatings that lower the environmental impact of our customers’ operations. This has led to a number of industry changing technologies, such as our award-winning Hempasil and Hempaguard hull coatings. Improving the environmental performance of our own formulations is a natural extension of this work, and we hope that the industry embraces the concept. At the same time, I would like to thank EEA Grants for their generous support of this important project.”
