The objectives of the Research Plan are (1) to demonstrate the efficacy, feasibility and environmental safety of Cutlerite as a treatment for ballast water, and (2) to obtain the experimental data necessary to satisfy EPA requirements for registration of Cutlerite as a commercial biocide. The Research Plan includes three separate components: 1. Aquatic toxicology assays, to measure the effective concentrations of Cutlerite against potential aquatic nuisance species; 2) Environmental fate analyses, to measure the biodegradation of Cutlerite; 3) Dockside and Shipboard trials, to measure the performance of Cutlerite under real-world conditions.
