Development, characterization and Life Cycle Assessment of Smart Marine Coatings

This research project will determine the associated greenhouse gas emissions associated with an environmentally friendly graphene-based coating to see how it compares with other marine coatings currently in industry. The developed methodology can be used in future life cycle assessments, as it will provide an innovative way of modelling graphene-based coating systems. GIT will benefit from the results of the life-cycle assessment as they will be able to identify areas in their production process where they can reduce both costs and emissions. GIT will also benefit by using the LCA’s results to form an environmental marketing claim.
