Monitoring waste systems “MARPOL Annexe IV” Approved

As any vessel operator will already know, marine sewage treatment is a hugely important issue, and it’s one which is bound by a number of complex maritime regulations. The way a ship installation is allowed to process and dispose of sewage can vary from region to region, and because of this the operator needs to ensure high standards are always maintained.
