I-Tech AB will host the International Antifouling Conference 2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden, on September 13-14, 2023 in the Eriksberg shipyard area in Gothenburg, Sweden. The conference is sponsored by Stena Teknik and Lanxess. Keynote addresses will be delivered by representatives from Jotun, Stolt Tankers, Hapag Lloyd, Arxada, and the Florida Institute of Technology. In addition to the full two-day conference program, delegates of the International Antifouling Conference 2023 will also enjoy an optional visit to the research facilities of RISE, which is included in the conference ticket.

Participants of the inaugural International Antifouling Conference in 2022 held the unanimous belief that collaboration between technology providers and their suppliers, in addition to the expansion of the anti-fouling toolbox to include emerging novel solutions, are key to ensuring that anti-fouling coating solutions offer the best protection in intensifying biofouling conditions.

“This conference provides a much-needed platform for the R&D community from the marine coatings sector to meet, with the bonus that academia and end users participate and provide their vital insights,” said Markus Hoffmann, Ph.D., technical director at I-Tech. “Having a platform to discuss and gain inspiration from learning about novel solutions to ensure coatings are reliable and as high performance as possible is particularly important at this moment in time.”
