Luritek is a biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing proprietary products that safely and effectively manage marine fouling. These products address the increasingly complex balance between environmental responsibility and the need for highly effective control of marine biofouling and invasive species.
Luritek’s technology and solutions are applicable to a broad range of marine-related markets including commercial and military ships, aquaculture, leisure craft, power generation and industrial processes. The technology is typically deployed through coatings, which can be applied via traditional processes. Additionally, extensions of the technology provide for application in a variety of additional forms and functions.
The patented technologies of Luritek mimic nature’s own processes for controlling marine biofouling. Through the support of beneficial biofilms, utilizing engineered substrates, marine biofouling is managed through the principle of stenoprophilicity.
