BALLAST WATER STANDARDIZATION

COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVES

Office of Environment

“Government makes the rules.

We assist industry in complying with them.”


Ballast water standardization collaborative initiatives december 9 2009

Two Perspectives Related to Collaboration:

  • Developing US-based facilities for testing performance of ballast water treatment technologies (complying with a standard)

  • Developing a standard for sampling treated ballast water aboard ships (creating a standard)


Ballast water standardization collaborative initiatives december 9 2009

Bottom Line:

  • Collaborating with non-profits and academia to develop infrastructure needed for certifying ballast water treatment systems

  • Facilitating collaboration between facility operators/scientists

  • Must have US-based infrastructure to support certification of technologies for use in US waters

  • Yes, we are also in discussions with the USCG regarding facility requirements

Iso involvement

ISO Involvement

Collaborate Closely with International and Domestic Standards Bodies, NGOs and Regulatory Organizations (In and Out of Government)

  • Chair ISO TC8/SC3

  • Secretariat ISO TC8/SC2

  • Member of ISO TC8 Advisory Group

  • Official ISO Observer and POC to IMO-DE (Design and Equipment)

ISO TC8 (Ships & Marine Technology)

SC3 (Piping & Machinery)

SC2 (Marine Environment Protection)

“IMO tells people what to do. ISO tells them how to do it.”


Bw standard

BW Standard

The Guidelines for Ballast Water Sampling (G2) were adopted by the IMO on 10 October 2008

ISO Technical Committee 8/ Subcommittee 3 has begun the development of a standard that will assist in the implementation of the Guidelines

NOT AS EASY AS IT APPEARS

Can ANSI members assist in the process?


Where we are headed

IMO Guidelines Recommend:

Samples should be taken from the discharge line as near the point of discharge as practicable

Proper sampling protocols are required to obtain representative samples

Proper handling and analyses are essential

Where we are headed


Thus a 3 part standard

Thus, a 3-part standard

Initial Standard : Discharge Sampling Procedures

Evolved to:

Part 1: Discharge sampling port (or “facilities”) (SC3)

Part 2: Processing of ballast water samples (SC2)

Part 3: Analyses of ballast water samples to determine numbers of living organisms (SC2)


Current status

Current Status


Issues related to the sampling port

Issues related to the sampling port

  • Must be galvanically compatible material

  • Dimensions of the bent pipe or pitot tube

  • How can we change flow at the sample port

  • How will large volumes of treated water be processed (concentrated) and how will the waste water be handled?

  • Is the sampling tube permanent or semi-permanent?

    • If semi, who is responsible for it?


Issues related to the sampling port cont

Issues related to the sampling port – cont

  • Volume to be sampled? Proportional versus fixed volume? Periodic or sampling throughout the process?

  • Tube configuration: C versus L?

  • Should tube be in center of the pipe as suggested by diagram? There are 2 schools of thought on this.

  • Location of tube with respect to pipe bends?

  • Sufficient space in engine room for extracting samples?


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • The standards making process continues and your help is needed. By collaborating, we will have a standard that can be used by the marine industry.
