Wastewater Discharges from Vessels in the Arctic

A Survey of Current Practices

Objective

The goal of this project is to better understand current practices of Arctic ship operators related to wastewater discharges in the Arctic, specifically grey water, sewage, and exhaust gas cleaning system (scrubber) effluent.

Activities

The project will conduct a survey directed at shipping operators and industry trade associations. A third-party contractor will be hired to conduct the confidential survey. Non-attributed results will be summarized, and a report written and shared with PAME members for comment, review, and finalization. By collaborating with industry associations like the Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), the consultant will conduct outreach and request interviews of current shipping operators, including cruise and tourism, pleasure craft, ferries, bulk carriers, fishing, research, tankers, and community and development project re-supply.
