Managing Ballast Water Poses Challenges

The Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) will eventually introduce a new operational burden on ships’ crews with the introduction of ballast water management systems (BWMS).

Most BWMSs are designed so that they clean the water when the ship is ballasting and de-ballasting, with the de-ballasting step being either to neutralise biocides or another dose of treatment.
