Envirocleanse LLC inTank™ Ballast Water Treatment System Completes Type Approval Testing

HOUSTON, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Envirocleanse LLC, division of Charter Brokerage, a BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY company, announces the completion of all land-based and shipboard testing for its patented inTank™ Ballast Water Treatment System.   Having successfully concluded these tests, Envirocleanse will now be submitting application in the First Quarter of 2018 to the US Coast Guard for Type Approval.  Type Approval applications for IMO/Flag will follow after the appropriately scheduled MEPC meetings.

The inTank BWTS uses a unique dispersion system patented by the US Geological Survey for mixing the active substance in the ballast tanks.  Treatment of the tanks is performed in transit, which means there is no disruption to in-port cargo operations.  The Envirocleanse inTank™ BWTS can use either electrically generated hypochlorite or bulk chemical as the means to provide disinfectant.  Having these options allows the user flexibility to choose the system which best fits their vessel profile.

“The inTank BWTS is an important and unique addition to the current offerings in the marketplace,” states Matt Hughes, EVP of Sales and Marketing, Envirocleanse.  “There is no filter utilized; there are no repower requirements for the vessel; there is no crew interaction required in port.   inTank has a compact and flexible profile that never impacts or slows down cargo operations, ballast loading or discharge operations.   In short, one of the primary concerns of today’s ship operators – BWTS operational delays and related demurrage – has effectively been eliminated.   Add all of these advantages to the fact that we will likely be the most cost competitive system on the market.”

About Envirocleanse LLC

The mission of Envirocleanse is to provide a superior ballast water treatment system that assists companies around the world to perform at the highest safety, compliance and reliability standards.  Envirocleanse LLC is a division of Charter Brokerage, a BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY company.

China welcomes two Koreas’ move to improve ties as hotline reopens

China on Wednesday welcomed and expressed support for efforts by North Korea and South Korea to improve relations as the Koreas resumed a cross-border communication channel, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. “China welcomes and supports the two sides to improve ties, ease tensions and make concrete efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang made the remarks at a press briefing in Beijing.

“All parties should take the opportunity and work for the same goal,” said Geng. Earlier in the day, North Korea reopened a long-closed communications channel with the South in the truce village of Panmunjom. According to reports, the Koreas will use the channel to hold working-level discussions related to the North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The move comes a day after South Korea proposed holding a senior-level, inter-governmental dialogue on January 9 to discuss the North’s dispatch of its delegation to the Winter Olympics. Geng said China is willing to play a positive and constructive role to push the Korean Peninsula issue back to the track of a peaceful settlement through talks and negotiation.
