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.
