Bacteria and fungi love to grow near water, in water systems – even on the surface of water itself.  

Biofilm is the direct cause of corrosion, scale, slime, equipment clogging, and contamination — including in food production and processing from farm to fork (“microfouling”), as well as the attachment of barnacles, mussels and algae to marine surfaces (“macrofouling”).

Biofilm and fouling cause increased operational costs, downtime, fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, and an ever-larger toxic load on ecosystems, as “shock” doses of antimicrobials are needed to be effective.


Aequor’s chemicals are non-toxic, “green,” eco-friendly, and sustainable.

They prevent and remove biofilm from all systems and inert, organic and nano surfaces, increasing the operational integrity of equipment, and safety of the water and food that we consume.
