To safeguard the environment, protect local aquatic and animal life, and maintain strong relationships with the community, it’s vital that ports and harbors safely dispose of waste. Some of the most common forms of waste are:

  • Large pieces of debris, such as sheets of plastic, which may harm or kill animals and plants important to the ecosystem.
  • Plastic litter from ships, including plastic bags and strapping bands. These can hurt birds and marine mammals such as dolphins and seals – which may get tangled up and smother to death, or accidentally swallow and choke on waste. Discarded fishing nets and lines are also common hazards.
  • Floating garbage, which can provide a means of transport for harmful aquatic organisms.
  • Waste ships accumulate and collect throughout their voyage that must be disposed of when they dock.

To fight these threats, IWI’s Dual Reactor Systems can be used to treat the above waste, indoors or outdoors, produce energy and reduce the combustible waste as much as 95%, like IWI's systems at Jeddah Port in Saudi Arabia.
