BlueTech® Research, in conjunction with B2B Webinars, would like to invite you to our upcoming interactive webinar, as BlueTech Research revisits the topic of ballast water treatment. The ballast water treatment (BWT) market is driven by international regulations from International Maritime Organization (IMO) and US Coast Guard, and over the past decade, it has been predicted to become a multi-billion dollar market. However, commercial progress so far has arguably been slow due to the pending IMO ratification.

Amid the range of system options and system providers for BWT technologies, it can be challenging for clients to navigate their way through various claims and identify the key factors that should influence their decisions. The most appropriate technology will vary from ship to ship and will be a balance among energy use, the ability to deal with water quality variability (and temperature), reliability, ease of operation and maintenance, and overall costs. Is there clarity on what technology should be used for different circumstances? Are there clear “losers and winners”?

This BlueTech Webinar will bring together perspectives from an international panel, featuring presentations from leading industry technology providers representing three of the dominant approaches currently used, (Jürgen Meier, Evonik Industries, Jim Cosman, Trojan Marinex, and Jeffrey Barber, N.E.I. Treatment Systems), and a shipping industry expert (to be confirmed). Panelists will discuss the current status and future direction of the ballast water treatment market, offering analysis on core technology performances and their practicality of implementation, as well as the potential economic benefits, and commercial opportunities. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session to address specific questions from participants.

Questions to be answered include:

  • How is ballast water treatment market developing?
  • How did the acceptance of USCG regulations and the alternate management systems (AMS) affect the current market scenario?
  • What market dynamics are influencing current players?
  • Are today’s ballast water treatment systems meeting customers' needs or is additional development required?
  • Will ship owners consider retrofitting options prior to ratification? What are the key industry challenges that equipment suppliers face?
  • How can a new entrant break into this market?
  • What are the treatment trains typically available? What are their advantages and disadvantages, and are there alternative approaches?
  • What innovations are emerging and leading to new opportunities?
  • What is the future of this market?

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
