Mapping regulatory differences on chemical emissions of OWFs
To compile an overview of current regulations on OWF chemical emissions in the North Sea region and establish a framework towards regional harmonisation of regulations.
Chemical and particulate emissions from OWFs
To characterise the emission, levels and distribution of priority chemicals and paint flakes from OWFs by combining experimental and modelling approaches.
Impact of chemical leachates from OWFs on aquaculture products and marine life
To determine biological effects of chemical emissions from OWFs and to assess the impact on marine life. By assessing effects on seafood quality, opportunities for aquaculture at OWFs will be evaluated.
Solutions towards OWFs with non-harmful chemical impact
To suggest the most sustainable solutions regarding OWF chemical emissions, comparing different corrosion protection systems and proposing reduction measures for different emissions sources.
