This technical report presents findings from bench-scale tests evaluating the performance of the Amglo Kemlite Bench-Scale Ballast Water Management System (BWMS), hereafter Amglo Kemlite BWMS, developed by Amglo Kemlite Laboratories Inc. of Bensonville, Illinois. The Amglo Kemlite BWMS applies a patented light separation technology to treat ballast water with pulsed poly-chromatic light. The light separation technology employs high-energy, pulsed xenon flash lamps. The Amglo Kemlite BWMS is a bench-scale prototype with a single production-sized lamp and power supply installed in an appropriately sized unit for laboratory evaluation.
