Ballast Water Market

Invasive Aquatic Species in ship’s ballast water is one of the biggest problems faced by the shipping industry. Posing a great threat to the marine ecosystem, these aquatic species has led to an increase in bio-invasion at an alarming rate. Under IMO’s “International Convention for the Control and Management of Ship’s Ballast Water and Sediments”, implementation of ballast water management plan and ballast water treatment systems on board ships has thus become important.

Wire cloth is utilized in many applications for ballast water market filtration. Dorstener supplies 316L, 904L, and supper duplex alloys for this application. Dorstener produces sintered ballast water filter elements in all shapes and sizes.
