Ballast water Treatment

The introduction of invasive marine species into new environments by ships’ ballast water, attached to ships’ hulls and via other vectors has been identified as one of the four greatest threats to the world’s oceans.

Ships transfer approximately 3 to 5 billion tonnes of ballast water internationally each year. A similar volume may also be transferred domestically within countries and regions each year. loaded ships. However, it may also pose a serious ecological, economic and health threat.
On 13th February 2004 the “International Convention for Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast water and sediments (BWMC) was adopted. The BWMC allows exchange of Ballast water at open seas or treatment of the Ballast water to fulfill the so-called D2 Standard. The Ballast water treatment Systems are subdivided into Systems, which use or generate active substances and those which do not use Active substances. The first systems are subject to a two-stage approval process by the IMO GESAMP Ballast Water Working Group.
