SGS checks the cleanliness of your water by using biotic indices identification on ballast water samples to test for the presence of organisms in the water.

Call our water management team today to ensure you minimise the impact of your waste water on the marine environment.

Biodiversity in streams is a sign of a healthy environment. Where water supplies are affected by contamination, the presence of different organisms will vary depending on their resistance to pollution. Measuring the numbers of these species is the basis of biotic indices identification and ballast water sampling.

Ballast water sampling and biotic index measurement identify organisms in your water to check the water quality and determine any purification treatment needed. Our worldwide sampling and testing laboratories help you to meet all national and international regulations for water cleanliness and minimise effluent and discharge from your industrial activities.
