Plastic Pollution in the Ocean is prevented by using Biodigesters to Meet DOJ Requirements
Power Knot Ocean, the market leader for onboard organic waste management solutions in the marine environment, announced today that its solutions for environmentally responsible disposal of organic waste meet DOJ requirements to avoid plastic pollution. "Power Knot Ocean solutions are currently being utilized by hundreds of ships to prevent plastic pollution and improve operations," said Iain Milnes, President at Power Knot. "Ship operators who are all under scrutiny by the DOJ can now meet DOJ compliance after integrating the LFC biodigester and the WEP pump with their waste disposal systems." Power Knot Ocean provides safe and economically sound solutions for managers of cruise ships, cargo ships, and yachts globally seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and comply with DOJ and MARPOL regulations. Our technologies are proven, available today, have been in reliable use for many years, and offer a payback period typically of less than two years. The LFC® biodigester is a machine that digests food waste. These machines are usually installed in the galley and reduce the expense, inconvenience, mess, and carbon footprint of disposing of food waste that would otherwise be offloaded with a tender. Power Knot has eight different sizes that digest from 10 kg (20 lb) per day to 3000 kg (6600 lb) per day of food waste.
