Cargo residues and tank washings of persistent floating products
The discharge of tank washings from tanks carrying products defined as “persistent floaters” is regulated by amendments to MARPOL II. The amendments apply to specific geographic areas and will require a prewash procedure which discharges the tank washings to a reception facility at the port of unloading. Related amendments have been made to IBC Code and BHC Code.
