Project Description


Electrolysis-based Ballast Water Treatment in PortsĀ 

Principal Investigator – Daniel Esposito

Entrepreneurial Lead – Carl Fisher

The Project

Invasive species transported around the world in the ballast water tanks of ships have created an international environmental calamity that costs the global economy $1.4 trillion annually. Currently, ships are required to install on-board ballast water treatment systems that are costly, prone to failure, and occasionally unable to meet regulations. At sHYp, we are developing a novel in-port ballast water treatment system based on an innovative electrochemical process that will offer ship and port operators a more reliable and cost-effective option for meeting the most stringent ballast water treatment regulations.
