  • Monitoring hydrocarbons in Bilge water - Case study

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged ...

  • Electrocoagulation and nanofiltration integrated process application in purification of bilge water using response surface methodology

    Marine pollution has been considered an increasing problem because of the increase in sea transportation day by day. Therefore, a large volume of bilge water which contains petroleum, oil and hydrocarbons in high concentrations is generated from all types of ships. In this study, treatment of bilge water by electrocoagulation/electroflotation and nanofiltration integrated process is ...

  • Bioremediation Of Oily Bilge Water Using BilgeRemed On M/V Cape Wrath

    The study was undertaken for Crowley Shipping Company, managers for reduced Operational ships or ROSS ships to evaluate BilgeRemed for complete reduction of oil in the oily bilge water. The oily bilge water in these ships is collected by contracted trucks who transport the bilge water for off-site disposal and is generally a very expensive operation. In a cost cutting effort a study on effect of ...

  • Bioremediation of Oily Bilge Using BilgeRemed on board M/V Swift Arrow

    Ship board studies on effect of BilgeRemed on oily bilge water in sea going ships was carried out on a ship operating from Port Kitimat, BC in Canada. 5 gallons of BilgeRemed was added on a weekly basis to the oily bilge water holding tank after collecting a airlifting sample of oily bilge water for analysis to SARVA. The results show that the Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) of the water was ...
