An additional annex to the MARPOL Convention may be introduced to provide stringent recommendations for the incineration of ship wastes at sea. A shipboard incinerator plant developed by Vesta, in Denmark, has been tested and is claimed to provide "a new solution to incineration that makes no more air pollution than present diesel engines." Known as the Maxi Type 25-SL, the unit is a multistage incinerator capable of handling garbage, plastics, oil rags and dunnage.
