Germany's Deerberg Systems has been a pioneer in the waste management sec- tor, responsible for the creation of the
System (MPWMS). Given the increas- ing political attention given towards clean seas, and the tremendous public backlash and financial ramifications for companies who pollute, organizations such as Deerberg are positioned to clean up in the marine market.
The complete MPWMS design is based on the pre-condition that the oper- ator must be free in his decision to oper- ate the complete system in a Non-Sort- ing or Sorting Mode from one moment to the other. All subsystems, such as shredder, silo, incinerator and de-ashing are able to handle all kinds of burnable and non-burnable waste. Glass, tins and metal cans as non-burnable waste, can pass through the system as well as all kinds of burnable waste, like plastic, paper, etc. On top of this, the Incinera- tion System is able to handle high quan- tities of Sludge Oil and Food Waste with burn out results of 100 percent. The heart of the MPWMS, the unique design of the Incinerator, equipped with mov- able grate technology, facilitates this.
The advantages for the operator are the simple handling of waste, no manual sorting out, less manpower, low expen- diture of work, disinfected, bacteria free sterile ash.
The complete system fulfils all inter- national and national rules and regula- tions such as IMO. EPA, USDA, USCG
USPHS as well as future rules for emis- sions. This ensures that all world-wide receiving stations will accept disinfect- ed, bacteria free and non smelling resid- uals. Import of bacteria to foreign coun- tries is excluded. Ash disposal to sea is also possible, because all plastic is burned 100 percent.
Another important development is the
Deerberg Complete Green Ship Philoso- phy 21, which takes into account all emissions to sea, air and land, offering to the ship owner a total turn-key pack- age of Waste Management following rigorously the Zero Discharge Ideals of the 21 st century.
This development has been rounded up by the introduction of Hepburn Bio
Ship Care Products (HBSC), which replace the acids and chemical cleaning products used onboard ships by biologi-
July, 2001 cal products. This new generation of totally biodegradable cleaning and tech- nical products help to dramatically reduce the blockages, odors, and pollu- tion levels.
