BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT OF SHIPBOARD SEWAGE AND OTHER HUMAN WASTES
Past experiences indicate that shipboard waste treatment systems cannot be merely miniaturized replicas of municipal high rate or extended aeration plants, nor be built around units with usefulness limited to secondary effluent polishing (electolysis, activated carbon column), nor designed without regard to the specific characteristics required for handling of shipboard wastes, i.e., dynamic platform, variable hydraulic loading and waste composition. The objectives of this study were reviewed and evaluated methods of biological degradation of wastewater components with cognizance of characteristics peculiar to ships and small populations, and preparation of recommendations for research and development approaches which will provide information for the design of useful and practical onboard wastewater treatment units.
