CSIRO ANTIFOULING TRIAL

 

An annual update to the CSIRO study taking place partly at QCYC:

Members may not be aware that Andrew Poole and the CSIRO have been conducting a study of antifouling applications at QCYC since 2013. Hidden under the south wharf is a test board, which is inspected regularly by Andrew.

Reports are available for 2016 and 2017. It is exciting to think that some potentially significant commercial applications arising from this study may result, at least in part, due to the environment at QCYC.
