EPA FUNDS TBT STUDY FOR ANTIFOULANTS

The Center for Advanced Ship Repair and Maintenance (CASRM) at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, was awarded a contract by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for work associated with tributyltin (TBT), a toxic compound used as a biocide in antifouling paints. Under the contract, CASRM will develop water treatment technologies to remove TBT from shipyard wastewater, and it will operate a demonstration pilot plant to test 500,000 gal (1,892,500 l) of shipyard washdown wastewater.
