GREENHULL Project Final Conference - 26th August 2022


GreenHull Project Final Conference
26th August 2022, 09:30 - 15h30

NIB - National Institute of Biology, Marine Biology Station Piran
Fornače 41 - 6330 Piran (Slovenia)

The GreenHull project, supported by the Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia co-operation programme financed by the European Regional Development Fund, has developed an integrated system for the removal of biofouling from boat hulls, consisting of a ROV - Remotely Operated Vehicle equipped with a cleaning module and a modular purification plant capable of operating in "circular logic" and in compliance with legal requirements. In addition, a further cleaning module was developed as part of the project, which can be assembled on the ROV and used for the removal of fouling from submerged structures and barriers (3rd innovative green technology).

In addition to developing a system that, although prototypical, has shown its basic validity, the project partners drew up guidelines for the use of this technology as well as developing solutions for the cross-border management of water and waste material resulting from the cleaning of biological fouling through this system and to be treated as hazardous waste.

The results of the GreenHull project will be presented at the final conference to be held in the Congress Hall of the NIB - National Institute of Biology, a partner in the project.

The public conference, an opportunity to learn about the project outcomes, will include a demonstration session of the system for the removal of biofouling in a controlled environment, during which participants will have the opportunity to "touch" what has been developed.


You are invited to the public presentation and subsequent demonstration of the integrated system, as scheduled.


Speakers are requested to attend the event in person, while the public will be able to follow the workshop both in person and online.
