INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Water Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets: GWTR) has identified ballast water treatment as an area of interest and will be participating in an event co-hosted by the Ports of Indiana and Purdue University.
"The discharge of untreated ballast water by ships, especially those from foreign ports, is a weak link in protecting aquatic ecosystems such as the Great Lakes," said Erik Hromadka, chairman and CEO of Global Water Technologies. "We believe this global market presents great opportunities for new treatment solutions and are investigating those options."
Global Water is a sponsor of the Indiana Logistics Summit on October 26-27, an event that brings national leaders to the state to discuss such issues, including the topic of invasive species and new ballast regulations. More information about the event is at: www.indianalogistics.com
"As we build strategic partnerships to develop and deploy new technologies that can have an impact around the world, it's helpful to have the leadership of organizations such as the Ports of Indiana and Purdue University," Hromadka said.
