Foul play in the Baltic

September 24, 2010

Being caught dumping toilet water in the seas ought to be embarrassing for any cruise company striving to be perceived as “eco” or “environmentally friendly”. One wonders of course why this behavior is still legal but it seems legislation is on the way as the area has been made a priority the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan. Legal or not, there are several options to avoid dumping waste water in the sea. In our research we have found interesting solutions to both processing the waste onboard and offloading it in ports. For other areas, look here, and also keep a lookout for some early results from our research. We will post it here.
