One of the problems facing the shipping industry is the disposal of shipboard generated waste. The problem is especially acute in coastal areas and the Mediterranean where the overboard discharge of solid and oily waste is prohibited. One of the Navy's solutions to this problem is the development of a shipboard multifunctional waste incinerator. This incinerator is designed to process on a daily basis shipboard generated trash, food waste, sewage sludge from a sewage treatment system, and oily waste from the effluent side of an oil-water separator. This paper shall discuss decisions made during the laboratory evaluation and solutions to these problems for the multifunctional waste incinerator.
