bulk carriers – bilge water
Discharge of bilge water from bulk carriers is a normal part of operations. However, discharge of mineral oil as part of the bilge water is generally undesirable since this oil contains numerous chemical compounds - most of which are not easily biologically degradable. Therefore, discharging clean bilge water is a goal for all responsible shipowners.
Since discharging of minerals oils as part of the bilge water is generally considered to be hazardous to the environment and health, many ships have an oily water separator installed to clean bilge water before discharge. However, more often than not the separator performs to required standards only if it was recently cleaned and when in perfect trim. Even then, the oily water separator has problems dealing with the oil content. The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) stipulates a maximum of 15 ppm for bilge water discharged into open waters, and breaking rules may lead to penalties or off-hire.
