I am Toby and just writing my Bachelor thesis (industrial engineering) in the marine business.
My topic is a [B]market analysis[/B] regarding [B]OIL SLUDGE DISPOSAL[/B].
Unfortunately, it’s not very easy to get through this business and information are few …
But now did I find your forum !!
My main questions are:
1.) How much does it usually (in average) [B]COST to dispose oil sludge [/B]in the different ports around the world (I heard in China, India and Brazil you even [B]GET paid[/B] to dispose your sludge !? Do other port pay you as well ??)
2.) What do the dispose companies [B]do [/B]with the sludge ?? (do they burn it to get energy, do they separate the 3 parts oil, water and sediments, … ??)
3.) Do ships usually are [B]compelled to dispose[/B] their sludge if they enter the a port ??
4.) Do disposal companies [B]HAVE TO take oils sludge[/B] OR oily sediments from the ships ??
I hope you can help me … I am really desperate, since I cannot find a lot of information …
THANK YOU SO MUCH :)!! Best wishes,
