THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIMPLE WASTE TREATMENT SYSTEM FOR U.S. NAVAL VESSELS
A successful sludge digestion of shipboard wastes containing sanitary, food (garbage), and 0.05% crankcase oil was carried out by continuous fermentation in an apparatus developed by the authors. An initial waste of over 1000 mg/l COD was reduced to less than 100 mg/l COD in a six hour residence time. Although this was a preliminary (Phase I) study on laboratory feasibility of an aerobic oxidation process for shipboard waste, the potential advantages to scaleup for naval and other ship waste treatment are highly recommended.
