    Abstract

    This paper describes the laboratory tests of the ultrasonic and ozone treatment devices conducted in the MARTOB research project in June 2002. A research project MARTOB (On Board Treatment of Ballast Water (Technologies Development and Applications) and Application of Low-sulphur Marine Fuels), partly funded by EU, was established in 2001 to find out solutions on the development of onboard ballast water treatment. The research program consists of various sub-projects and working packages among them the laboratory scale testing of the different treatment systems has been one of the most interesting tasks. The main aims of this study have been to investigate the various possible methods for controlling the transfer of non-indigenous organisms and bacteria through the ballast water.
