Abstract

Ballast water is water kept in the ballast tank of ships in order to increase its stability and balance during shipping. Although it helps in maintaining the ships’ stability and safety, the exchange of ballast water causes the spreading of heavy metals present in the ballast tank to the surrounding seawater. Therefore, this research aims to investigate the spreading of heavy metals from ballast water taken from numerous countries and released at the Port Tanjung Pelepas. A comparison was done between seawater and ballast water samples using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES) and the data were statistically analysed using Microsoft Excel. The results showed that Fe and Zn were detected at high concentrations in ballast water, while Fe was also highly concentrated in seawater. Besides that, this study found out that changes in weather is one of the factors that contribute to the differences in heavy metal concentrations in seawater.
