Waste and Cleaning Systems

There are various types of waste generated during operation, and to be able to implement a waste management system, it is necessary to identify and quantify the different types of waste on board. Management, handling, and disposal of ship-generated garbage can be divided into different phases with several options in each phase depending on vessel resources and port reception facilities. The handling and storing of garbage will vary depending on the type of vessel, areas of operation, number of people on board, etc. Careful planning, with proper processing and garbage disposal options in mind, can ensure compliance with regulations as well as efficient waste management. A Garbage Management Plan should be prepared early in the design process for new-buildings to adjust space, equipment, and needs accordingly.
