With an entry-into-force date of 8 September 2017 now set for IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention, many owners and operators will be making important decisions about ballast water treatment when this conference takes place in late April.
The conference will provide a comprehensive update on regulations, technology and management strategies dealing with cost and compliance. Key industry bodies will share their latest initiatives and best practice guidelines and leading technology companies will present their latest solutions.
