Abstract [en]

This paper deals with challenges associated with handling scrubber waste in the port of Karlshamn and what various industry partners are doing to meet this growing demand. The main challenges have been the proportion of ships with scrubber, the amount of generated waste and waste characterisation. An understanding of these factors has been crucial in order to ascertain the aim of this study, which has been made with calculations based on leading manufacturer’s scrubber analyses and with an estimation of the quantity of ships with scrubber by examining AIS data from the Port of Karlshamn. In order to calculate the quantity of scrubber waste two different scenarios were established, which in turn produced two different outcomes. It has been shown that these two do not represent a significant effect for the waste handling in port. It has been established that the scrubber waste is hazardous waste and needs to be disposed in port without involvement of other types of waste. The amount of scrubber waste is relatively small compared to today’s waste handling in Swedish ports and can be managed with ease, this despite a potential rising demand for scrubbers in the future.
