Since thirty years LimnoMar focuses on the investigation of harmful substances in fresh and salt water, along with the search for and the development of environmental friendly under water coatings. Since 2018 the biological station of LimnoMar art Norderney island has been transferred to Brill Hygiene, the work at the location in Hamburg is still going on. On the background of climate protection, biosecurity and the need of fuel savings, innovative and environmental friendly under water coatings are the actual challenges.
The input of antifouling biocides – those which are approved as well those which are banned - are still posing a threat (see on our news: Trends in organotin pollution). Unnecessary inputs are still a problem caused by unaware antifouling practice in marinas and dockyards.
There are still some challenges ahead. LimnoMar delivers scientific sound information and thrives for perspective solutions.
