Project description

English EN

Wastewater treatment solution for the maritime transportation industry

Organic waste in the maritime transportation industry is a serious problem as technologically outdated wastewater treatment systems are still being used. The result is that nasty smells are not eliminated in cruise ships affecting the offered services, while sanitary problems emerge in commercial vessels. The solution proposed will tackle organic waste components such as fat, oil and grease from the waste pipe system in ships and vessels. The product was tested in several pilot projects. The EU-funded WAIT IT project will conduct a feasibility study to offer a complete and efficient solution to organic waste management in the maritime transportation industry.
