Erik Ytreberg

Senior Researcher at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Maritime Studies, Maritime Environmental Sciences

Erik Ytreberg holds a Ph.D. in environmental science at the department of mechanics and maritime sciences. His research focuses on assessing the environmental impact of shipping through the DPSIR concept (Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-Response). Thus, he is determining both the pressure of different pollutants from shipping to the marine environment and the corresponding environmental state and impact on ecosystems. Erik is also focusing his research on antifouling techniques and how to optimize the performance and minimize the environmental impact of antifouling paints where he uses XRF to determine the release rate of metallic biocides.
