Hydro Brochure Highlights Latest Garbage Treatment Systems For Cruise Ships

International regulations for prevention of pollution by garbage from ships have become much more stringent in recent years, requiring the installation of an effective onboard garbage handling and incineration system.

Norsk Hydro Environmental and Energy Systems, which has many years of experience in engineering and manufacturing of waste-handling systems, has published a fullcolor brochure on cruise ship waste treatment plants tailor-made to achieve maximum effect and best economy.

State-of-the-art combustion technology as used in the Norsk Hydro multi-chamber partial pyrolytic marine incinerators precludes the emissions of black smoke, fly ash, malodors or toxic substances. The waste handling system has been developed into an automated process—garbage is fed into the system as close as possible to where it is generated and subsequently not seen again.

The sterile ash is automatically and continuously removed from the incinerator and discharged to the sea.

A typical automated plant on board a modern cruise ship is diagrammed in the brochure, and equipment necessary for the plant is listed for dry burnable gargage, nonburnable garbage, and wet garbage.

Each individual system can be fitted to existing vessels already in operation or vessels under construction.

Hydro also provides project organization, installation supervision, startup, training and after sales service.
