The port service of the reception of waste products generated by ships consists of collecting and – in some cases – storing, classifying and treating their sewage prior to their transfer to an authorized treatment facility.

Ship’s SEWAGE is deemed to be all the waste – including bilge water, sludge and other waste that is not regarded as a cargo – produced by the ship, and is regulated by the 1973 International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships under Annexes I (solids) & IV (liquids) and modified by its 1978 Protocol, still current today (MARPOL 73/78).

The Port of Algeciras is the number one port in Spain for sewage collection, with the most economic prices in the application of the above convention.
