Sustainable technology company De Nora of the US has created a new legal entity, De Nora Marine Technologies, in order to facilitate De Nora’s global growth strategy within the maritime market, and address growing calls for advanced water treatment technologies in line with increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Already involved in ballast water treatment systems (BWTS), De Nora will use its new entity to deliver growth, facilitated via acquisitions and organically through sales of its Balpure BWTS and other soon-to-be launched water treatment technologies. De Nora Marine Technologies will be headquartered at De Nora’s facility in Sugarland Texas, headed by GM Matt Granitto, with existing project teams and global operational bases continuing to operate under the new entity.

The formation of De Nora Marine Technologies comes as owners and operators face a plethora of investment decisions regarding compliance with environmental regulations, this includes the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) and the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL). As demand for high quality water treatment technologies grows exponentially, the new streamlined entity aims to offer customers market leading products, developed and managed by a motivated and experienced team with the insight necessary to simplify the normally complex process of water treatment technology purchasing decisions.

Granitto said: “While the initial development of our marine business benefitted greatly from being part of a larger organization, it has entered a significant growth phase and is able to stand on its own. Through standing on its own, De Nora Marine Technologies is able to understand and better adapt to the unique needs of the maritime community, at a critical time when owners and operators are under intense scrutiny to increase their environmental performance. The commercial maritime market is unique and has different concerns from other verticals that De Nora has traditionally operated within. Now that De Nora Marine Technologies is a separate entity we can concentrate fully on becoming a partner of choice to the maritime community and continue to provide the highest quality products and services to the commercial marine market to ensure the protection of the environment.”
