Calgon Carbon 's ( CCC ) fully-owned subsidiary - Hyde Marine, Inc. -announced that it will exhibit the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold HG250G Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) at the Shipbuilding, Machinery, & Marine Technology (SMM) International Trade Fair scheduled to be held in Hamburg, Germany, from Sep 9-12 .

Unlike most ships with ballast water capacities in the range of 1500-5000 cubic meters per hour which need to comply with USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standards, the HG250G BWTS gives a flow rate of up to 250 cubic meters per hour. It also has skid mount design to be easily installed in exiting ships, overfilled machinery spaces and new ship construction. Designed for retrofits, the HG250G BWTS is small and compact which suits ship owners' requirements.

The HG250G BWTS has also received the Alternate Management System (AMS) Approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). The AMS approval is a temporary measure allowing BWTS to be used on ships for 5 years after they comply with the USCG Ballast Water Discharge Standards.

The HG250G BWTS is durable and technically advanced which meets the BWTS rule that requires ships to discharge ballast water free of any living organisms or pathogens.

Moreover, along with HG250G BWTS display at the SMM, Hyde Marine will be showcasing the B-box - a new BWTS recently sourced from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research ("NIOZ"). B-box is an efficient and effective service that can provides accurate and quick analysis of ballast water samples to ship owners.

Moving ahead, the ship owners will have to abide by the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWMC), which the IMO (International Maritime Organization) adopted in 2004. According to the norms, ballast tanks of ships have to be 99.99% free of microbes and pathogens.

Calgon Carbon, one of the prominent pollution control companies along with CECO Environmental Corp. ( CECE ) and Donaldson Company, Inc. ( DCI ), ventured into the global market for ballast water treatment with its acquisition of Hyde Marine in 2010.

Calgon Carbon currently holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

A better-ranked company in the pollution control industry is Sharps Compliance Corp. ( SMED ) with a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
