The TWI Innovation Network was at the IMO, in the context of developments on oil pollution from tankers transferring petrochemical products, which is a daily operation between countries and continents that involves a sophisticated and intensive maritime operation and logistics globally.
IMO covers several aspects of oil spillage response in terms of technical/regulatory knowledge.
There are several officially documented guidelines on how to manage oil spillage and removal.
TWI Innovation Network have several developments in the context of maritime operations; from antifouling in marine environments applicable to boats, ships, tankers and floating structures e.g. offshore oil and gas rigs, to risk-based prevention and management tools with a maritime focus.
For collaborative developments and activities in this area, contact the TWI Innovation Network.
