Ballast Water Purification Method

William Baumgartner, Boldor, Dorin

This invention relates to methods to purify ballast water in ships. Heating and ultrasonic processing have been demonstrated to address this problem. The heating method pumps the ballast water through a novel system that kills organisms and cycles the treated water back into the environment. The ultrasonic system kills organisms, cycles the treated water back into the environment and is particularly well suited for portable use.
