Ship-generated waste

Management of ship-generated waste has become a complex area, both legally and technically.Various types of waste are generated during operation and in order to implement a waste management system, it is necessary to identify and quantify the different types of waste on board. Too often a compactor is installed on board without being used.

Activities related to the management of ship-generated waste are broadly regulated internationally by MARPOL Annex V. The revised MARPOL Annex V entered into force on January 1st 2013 and sets the minimum standard for waste management. More specific requirements may exist in regional or national jurisdictions.
