The Bal Pure ballast water treatment system from Severn Trent De Nora received basic approval from the International Maritime Organization’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) 60th session, March 22-26, 2010.  As a result, Severn Trent De Nora has submitted its dossier for final approval of the system at an upcoming MEPC session. Severn Trent De Nora is also scheduled to conduct shipboard testing of the Bal Pure system May through November 2010 on the California Maritime Academy training ship, the T.S. Golden Bear.   The T.S. Golden Bear, a 500-ft vessel has been fitted with a modularized platform which enables ballast water treatment equipment manufacturers to test their system designs under real-life conditions. Testing is undertaken while the ship is berthed at the University’s campus on upper San Francisco Bay and during its summer training voyages on the Pacific.  On-board testing facilities enable researchers to collect data, which is then compiled and used by the ballast water treatment equipment manufacturer to obtain certification from various organizations.   Bal Pure is a patented system that generates biocides, meters and analyzes the residual level of both biocides and neutralizing agents and logs the performance of the overall ballast water treatment system. The system is proven as an effective, economical and high-capacity device to treat ballast water, with no adverse effects on the environment
