Ecochlor, Inc. announced that it has completed a $10 million equity financing to support its growth into the burgeoning ballast water treatment market. Since its formation in 2001, Ecochlor has raised over $22 million in equity.

Charlie Miller, Ecochlor’s Chairman and CEO, commented that “we are pleased to have the support of both new and existing investors in this recent financing. With this additional capital, Ecochlor is poised to take full advantage of the opportunities in the emerging ballast water treatment market by adding further sales and engineering resources to accelerate growth.”

The Ecochlor BWTS uses a two-step process to treat ballast water – filtration followed by disinfection with the well-known biocide, chlorine dioxide. The system’s effectiveness is not impaired by variations in salinity, temperature, turbidity, organics, and vibration, which can impact other treatment options. Furthermore, the small size, low power, and low maintenance characteristics of the Ecochlor system make it ideally suited for installation on the world’s largest ships. With its simple design, the Ecochlor system reduces complexity and time in the installation process, which makes it an excellent choice for use on both new and currently existing ships.

Janney Montgomery Scott LLC acted as Ecochlor’s financial advisor and sole placement agent to Ecochlor.
