SHIPBOARD SANITARY WASTE TREATMENT/MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
The introductory section concerns the engineering base of the work and shipboard constraints. These are then considered together with the principal methods of separating the pollutants from the medium carrying them. and for their destruction. Selected methods for attempting to achieve these ends have been incorporated in experimental models of sanitary waste treatment/management systems. Descriptions and simplified diagrams are given of six systems currently being studied. Typical general problems and operating experiences are discussed in some detail.
