Marine Sewage Treatment is approved for both marine/land. Any combination of fresh & saltwater, WC/Showers, toilets, laundry, and galley.

Discarding sewage produced onboard a ship is one of the few tasks that should be taken utmost care of if one wants to save him and his shipping company from a heavy fine. The sewage generated on the ship cannot be stored for a very long time, so it must be discharged into the sea.

Though sewage can be discharged into the sea, we cannot release it directly overboard as some regulations regarding removing sewage need to be followed. Sewage on the ocean is generally the waste produced from toilets, urinals, and WC scuppers. The rules say that the sewage can be discharged into the seawater only after it is treated, and the ship’s distance is four nautical miles from the nearest land.

But if the sewage is not treated, this can be discharged 12 nautical miles from the nearest land. Also, the discharged sewage should not produce any visible floating solids nor cause any discoloration of the surrounding water. The details of the sewage discharge regulations can be found in MARPOL Annex IV.
