Advanced Treatment of Shipboard Sewage by RCM Process with BM Ha, Shin-Young; Kim, In-Soo;
Lab scale experiment was carried out to study biological wastewater treatment technology developed for shipboard. RCM process using BM(Beneficial Microorganisms) was investigated for practical application on shipboard sewage treatment. RCM process is an environmental friendly treatment system, with minimum production of sludge. In the test, BOD5, CODcr, T-N and T-P were reduced a 96%, 97%, 78% and 81.68% respectively. From the result it was suggested that RCM process with BM might be a suitable process for shipboard sewage treatment, maintenance of useful microorganisms and creating special environment as the SDC tank is circulating in the non-biodegradable organics sludge generated during the wastewater treatment, thus reducing the amount of sludge generated. Therefore, the RCM process does not require additional equipment to strengthen it to meet the marine pollution standards.
