The Danish state fund Fornyelsesfonden awards USD 131.8 million a year to green projects, and this year the two ballast water projects are among the beneficiaries of those funds. Bawat, which is developing an in-tank system for purifying ballast water, is granted USD 485,500, and Litehauz, working on an instrument for measuring the correct purification of ballast water, has been awarded USD 589,600. Both projects are part of the “Ballast Water Partnership,” and have previously received funds from the partnership, which is a collaborative effort between the Ministry of the Environment, the Danish Shipowners’ Association, and the Danish Maritime Authority.
The chairman of Fornyelsesfonden, Carsten Bjerg, CEO of Grundfos, commented on the choice of the two projects in a press release:
