Sustainable Maritime Solutions
(NMT) is a close-knit, successful network. Shipyards, suppliers and service providers work together to achieve the impossible in all locations and conditions. As a result, In the field of maritime technology, these companies – large and small – are always one step ahead in the quest for new challenges and sustainable maritime solutions.
The theme of the year at NMT is sustainability. Despite the exceptional number of eco-friendly products and services the Dutch maritime technology designs, the companies that address all types of challenges facing society, the industry still does not have a green reputation.
Therefore, the fact that ‘unknown is unloved’, NMT already presented 178 sustainable maritime solutions. To the media, government authorities and the entire maritime sector during the ‘Dag van de Duurzaamheid’ (Sustainability Day) on 10 October 2016. The ‘Dag van de Duurzaamheid’ showcases the paramount importance which the Dutch maritime technology sector attaches to sustainability. Now on several more moments, such as exhibitions and trade missions, the strength of innovation on sustainability is shown.
As a result, the Dutch maritime technology sector is innovative and has hundreds of ideas to ensure sustainability in shipping. From emission reduction at sea to smart ship design. Find out here!
nC Marine uses the unique photocatalytic properties of titanium dioxide (TiO2). The photo catalytically active product is formulated for air purification, odour neutralisation and self-cleaning of surfaces. Exposed to light, the coating produces oxygen radicals on the surface. The activated oxygen enables the coating to decompose organic compounds on a molecular level just by means of light. Adding specific activators to TiO2 makes that the photocatalytic reaction takes place not only at natural but also artificial light conditions. Therefore it is perfectly suited for sanitation in hygiene areas as well. As a result, nC provides both coating as integrated light systems.
Especially, coating and light systems:
– Offer self cleaning surface, no or minimum use of cleaning agents rquired anymore;
– Eliminate bacteria, pollen, viruses, germs out of the air;
– Decompose odours from rooms;
– Are inexpensive and long-lasting: the photcatalysis does not consume itself;
– Are selfcleaning and do not require chemicals;
– Can be positioned in exhaust systems to filter air and give o² back to environment (we are looking for pilot-project here!)
