Picture: The volume of treated and non-treated recyclable and non-recyclable waste created per day on board a cruise vessel with 3,300 passengers. On average, waste compaction using Evac systems reduces the volume of waste that needs to be taken ashore for treatment in ratio 1:10.
Treating and recycling waste with dry and wet waste treatment systems
Our systems support customers in achieving their environmental goals by ensuring that they can treat mixed or recyclable waste in a safe, environmentally friendly, and energy efficient way. They also reduce waste volumes by sorting, compaction, shredding, and burning.
The illustration on the right shows the volume of recyclable and non-recyclable waste created per day on board a cruise vessel with 3,300 passengers and the volume of waste remaining after burning or compacting using our systems. On average, waste compaction using Evac systems reduces the volume of waste that needs to be taken ashore for treatment in ratio 1:10.
Responsible management of food waste
Proper treatment and recycling of food waste is essential in order to comply with environmental regulations, particularly in the marine sector. In order to protect the marine environment, vessels and offshore installations must be able to responsibly manage the food-based waste generated on board. Evac macerating units and vacuum collection units can be used to reduce food waste volumes and store waste onboard ready for proper recycling or disposal on shore.
