Summary

 
Object and purpose of research. This paper discusses sea pollution by ship ballast waters. The purpose of this study is to estimate the potential of technological and organizational solutions intended to prevent pollution of Russian seas by ballast waters discharged from ships.
Subject matter and methods.This paper discusses main technological and organizational approaches to ballast water treatment, as envisaged by the rules of International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments compulsory for the Russian Federation in terms of environmental safety of seas
Main results. This paper presents the results of innovative developments that became the basis for the first Russian ballast water management system (BWMS). It also suggests some additions to the Technical Regulations on Safety of Sea Transport Items to make them compliant with the Convention.
Conclusion. BWMS prototype discussed in this paper is reagent-free and eco-friendly, and its technical and economic efficiency is at the level of similar foreign equipment. The additions to the Technical Regulations on Safety of Sea Transport Items suggested in this study are directly connected with ensuring the feasibility of new cost-efficient Russian BWMSs.
