    Wastewater treatment for the sea- and inland ports/terminals

    Facing the increasing oversea trade, the environmental protection of the oceans is becoming increasingly important. The motto of the International Maritime Organization of the United Nations in London (IMO), “Safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans” confronts the shipping industry and in particular the terminal ports with growing challenges. The stored fuels, raw materials and resources of a country must not pollute the harbor water with their emissions in case of rain. Produced liquid ship waste contains oil emulsion and saline bilge water among others.

  • Waste management for military

    At sea or on land, compact removal of waste from military facilities is beyond a valuable and green activity, but a logistical imperative. Minimizing space, labour and equipment dedicated to waste management in both marine and land-based operations is of great value for military applications. In addition, security is a major concern for military ships. Minimizing the time the ships spend docked or in proximity to foreign ports significantly reduces the risks of enemy attack. Moreover, they generally carry more personnel than equivalent sized commercial vessels and spend longer periods at sea, intensifying waste management problems.

  • Waste management for ships and sea platforms

    For those who have lived in the arms of the sea, the bond is powerful and eternal. When mariners discharge waste into the sea, it is not carelessness but desperation…a last resort used in the absence of practical alternatives. The waste generated on every ship comes from both people and machinery. People generate garbage and sewage. The various motors and shafts generate used oils, dirty rags and a wide variety of other waste. The mariner has three options for all this waste: (i) store it on board and discharge it at the next port; (ii) treat it on board; or (iii) discharge it at sea. Today, none of these options are practical.
