Types of Ship Waste –

There are several types of waste that can be generated on board a ship. Some of the most common types include:

Garbage – This includes all solid waste generated on board the ship, such as food waste, packaging, and other non-toxic materials.

Ballast Water – This is the water that is used to stabilize the ship when it is not fully loaded. Ballast water can contain a variety of organisms, including invasive species, which can be harmful to the environment if released into a new ecosystem.

Oily Bilge Water – This is the water that collects in the lowest part of the ship and can contain oil, grease, and other contaminants.

Regulations Governing Ship Waste Disposal –

There are several regulations that govern the disposal of ship waste. The most important of these is the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), which sets out the rules and regulations for the prevention of pollution from ships.

Under MARPOL, all ships are required to have a garbage management plan in place that outlines the procedures for collecting, storing, and disposing of garbage. The plan must also include provisions for keeping the garbage separate from other waste and for the disposal of garbage at ports.

Ballast water is regulated under the Ballast Water Management Convention, which sets out the rules and regulations for the management and disposal of ballast water. Under the convention, ships are required to have a ballast water management plan in place that outlines the procedures for managing ballast water and preventing the introduction of invasive species.

Oily bilge water is regulated under the Oil Pollution Prevention Act, which sets out the rules and regulations for the prevention of oil pollution from ships. Under the act, ships are required to have an oil pollution prevention plan in place that outlines the procedures for collecting, storing, and disposing of oily bilge water.
