Problem: To operate safely and efficiently, cargo ships take in water to provide stability. This water, referred to as ballast, carries all kinds of bacteria, microbes and micro-algae. The ballast water must inevitably be discharged when the ship takes on cargo, often thousands of kilometers away from the port of origin, transferring pathogens and aquatic organisms that can cause serious environmental, economic and health problems.

The ballast water treatment market is set to experience significant growth in the next few years. In the wake of the ratification of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention and the introduction of the more stringent United States Coast Guard (USCG) Ballast Water Management Regulations, suppliers need to be ready to act on the expected spur of investment in ballast water treatment systems.
