SA Eng manufactures industrial shredders dedicated to the marine industry, in compliance with the MARPOL 73/78 regulations - V, about the shredding of the food waste before it is discharged into the sea. The machines, as required by the legislation itself, guarantee a final size below 25mm. The shredders, designed to be installed on board of cruise ships, ferries, offshore platforms can also treat light material such as paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles etc.
The maritime industry continues to experience growth in the United States and internationally. With the continual growth and industry conventions, Hoover Ferguson compactors, balers, crushers and food grinders are perfect for the high demands placed on the industry with MARPOL regulations and requirements.
While land-based industry has been subject to strenuous emissions regulations over the past decades, air emissions from sea-going ships’ machinery has so far been largely unregulated. As a result, according to EU statistics, ships have become the single biggest source of sulphur dioxide (SO2) within the EU. The US EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) reports similar findings, i.e., that the proportion of air pollutants released which can be attributed to the shipping industry is increasing. MARPOL Annex...
Control of ship diesel engine emissions to meet MARPOL requirements for particulate ash and soot, sulfur dioxide and NOx. Special compact inline stack mounted space saving designs. Both open loop arrangements using sea water or closed loop using a range of chemical solutions. Complete system offerings.
All ships and offshore platforms with more than 15 people must comply with the MARPOL Annex 5 and the International Maritime Organization regulations. A Bramidan baler is safe at sea – and makes waste handling easy.
In recent years, new regulations have been introduced governing emissions from ships. With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopting Annex VI of MARPOL designed to limit sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrous oxides (NOx) and particulate matter emissions, as well as introducing emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas, ship owners/operators can face hefty fines for failing to meet these new requirements on the “polluter pays” principle.
When ships discharge their bilge water the maximum level of hydrocarbons in the water is regulated by various Environmental Protection Agencies, for example there is a limit of 15ppm enforced by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) in all international waters. Companies breaching these limits are liable to significant fines. Further regulations have been introduced to control the use of bunker fuels. The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO has approved proposed amendments to the...
