COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF THE OPERATION OF SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS

In compliance with the basic provisions of the MARPOL 73/78 Convention, the Soviet Union has issued rules aimed at preventing pollution of the seas and other water expanses by ships. In accordance with national and international requirements, 228 Soviet ships are equipped with sewage treatment plants. These installations differ in their country of manufacture, the methods they use to process sewage, their design features, their capacity, and the reagents used. The standards established in the USSR for sewage treated in the plants and authorized for overboard discharge are tabulated. A second table shows indices of the effectiveness of the various plants over the period 1985-1988, and the data are discussed.
