Abstract
To ensure compliance with environmental regulations, Canadian naval vessels are or will be undergoing many changes in ship systems concerned with sewage disposal, waste disposal, oil and water separation technology and other processes that involve environmentally sensitive chemicals or materials. At the same time new, maintenance materials and processes are being introduced to reduce the production of volatile solvents, toxic chemicals, non-degradable products and hazardous waste. An overview of the current technologies and processes used on ships will be presented. Proposed new technologies and the possible problems in integrating them into ships systems will also be discussed.
