How ballast water is treated

The new regulation on ballast water management

According to the Regulation of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on Ballast Water Management, all ships are required to have approved and certified water treatment systems in order to prevent the spread of harmful substances through the water ballast.

In fact, ballast water  represents a threat to maritime environments and its untreated diffusion can lead to the disruption of the marine ecosystems of ports, lakes, estuaries and coasts. Idro Group's mission is to safeguard the environment by designing cutting-edge and sustainable solutions for the treatment of ballast water.
