MEP Nominated For Seatrade Award

Wednesday, March 26, 2003
Marine Environmental Partners, Inc. (MEP), a Fort Lauderdale-based developer of ballast water and wastewater treatment systems, has been nominated for the 2003 Seatrade Protection of the Marine and Atmospheric Environment Award. MEP's water treatment technology utilizes a patented MariSan electro-chemical process that prevents invasive aquatic species found in ballast water from being introduced into non-native marine ecosystems. MariSan meets and exceeds stringent environmental regulations including pending IMO, U.S. Coast Guard and other regional regulations. By eliminating the use of chemical additives, the MariSan system is environment-friendly, reduces the potential of onboard health risks from the handling, storage and disposal of chemicals, and saves the user high operational and maintenance costs.
