COUNTERING POLLUTION WITH CONTAINERISED INCINERATION

The MARPOL Annex 5 Regulation prohibits the overboard discharge of plastic waste. An onboard incinerator installation is the optimal solution, being preferable to the prolonged onboard storage of wastes in full volume or after compaction. Two super-compact incinerators made by A/S Vesta of Copenhagen for shipboard use are described. The first is the Atlas Maxi 25S, used for burning solid waste; the other is the Atlas Maxi 25SL, for burning solid waste and sludge oil simultaneously. Either can be built into a small 9 cu m ISO container and is delivered pre-wired and pre-piped.
