Research reveals filtration favored over disinfection when treating ballast water

July 31, 2015 -- When treating ships' ballast water, new research conducted by the Analytical BioGeoChemistry (BGC) research unit at the Helmholtz Zentrum München in Germany, working in close collaboration with colleagues in the United States, shows that filtration -- rather than disinfection -- can potentially serve as a more efficient method.

Treating ships' ballast water: filtration preferable to disinfection
Staff quoted: Michael Gonsior

Neuherberg -Untreated ballast water discharge from ships can spread living organisms and even pathogens across the world thereby introducing non-native or invasive species into the local environment. Scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum München therefore recommend using physical treatment processes such as filtration rather than electrochemical disinfection, which creates countless potentially toxic compounds. These are the findings of a recent study published in the journal 'Environmental Science and Technology'.

Our say: Rec center decision prompts head-scratching
Article Link Permanent Link

At its last meeting before its summer recess, the City Council finally came to grips with something that had been stuck on Annapolis' agenda for years: what to do with a 13,300-square-foot structure made obsolete by the opening of the Roger "Pip" Moyer Recreation Center five years ago. By deciding to sell the old recreation center on St. Marys Street for condominiums, the aldermen said no to a major city institution — St. Mary's Parish — and a major state one — the University of Maryland.
