Ballast Water Discharge Chemical Decay Model Developed

We have recently developed a chemical decay model able to predict the transport and decay of treatment chemicals used in the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Industry. The chemical decay model is fully incorporated into a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package.

We are currently applying this technology to address a particular issue as part of an assessment for US Coast Guard approval. By understanding the chemical characteristics of the BWM system the system can be fine-tuned to the optimal performance.
