The Great Waters Research Collaborative (GWRC), a major program of the University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Lake Superior Research Institute (LSRI), is devoted to conducting high-quality environmental research and providing independent testing services to support green shipping and promote the sustainable industrial, commercial, and public use of the great freshwater bodies of the world. The GWRC is lead and managed by LSRI, with engineering services provided by AMI Consulting Engineers P.A. and protist ecology and taxonomy services provided by researchers from the Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Since 2003, the GWRC research team has tested over 70 ballast water management and rapid assessment technologies, and has experience testing prototype technologies in a controlled, laboratory setting to testing market-ready systems installed onboard operating commercial vessels. With two successful shipboard type approval tests conducted already, it is clear to see that data quality is our top priority!
