Abstract

Biofilms grow on all surfaces immersed in sea water and costs billions of dollars to control. Today there exist many ways to reduce the macroscopic biofilm growth. In this work a new type of electrochemically based antifouling method is described and evaluated under laboratory and in situ growth conditions. An electrically conducting coating is developed and its antifouling properties under varying electrochemical stress levels are studied.
