Abstract
The results of the characterization of 40 bilge samples from CF ships are reported. The characterization included analysis of the pH, dissolved metal content, total suspended solids and total oil and grease in the acqueous phase and identification of the major components of the organic phase of the bilge samples. Eight samples exceeded the limit for dissolved cadmium and nine samples exceeded the limit for dissolved zinc. Five samples exceeded the limit for total suspended solids. The major components of the organic phase of the bilge samples were 3-GP-11 naval distillate fuel and lubricating oils. Five samples, that showed evidence of emulsification, were analysed for surfactants. All samples contained less than 30 parts per million anionic surfactant.
