TWO CASE STUDIES OF THE PRACTICAL ENFORCEMENT OF POLLUTION STANDARDS IN HARBOURS: ROTTERDAM EUROPOORT
Dutch legislation governing water pollution is reviewed, and international influences on water quality management are considered. The main refineries in the port area have facilities for the reception of oily ballast from tankers. Eighteen cleaning vessels of several hundred tons capacity each are available for cleaning the tanks of tankers, removing dirty water from ships, and separating the oil from such water. Certain chemical slops and residues must be brought ashore for treatment. In 1973 about 130,000 metric TPY of slops were being handled. The quantity of slops could be reduced by structural modifications to the ships, improved cleaning techniques, and the introduction of special tanks for certain bulk chemicals.
