Abstract (en)

A waste-disposing sea-going vessel (1) includes a vessel body that carries solid waste-holding containers (12) to a site at sea far away from land. The vessel body (1) further has an incinerator (11) to incinerate the solid wastes of the containers, a scrubbing chamber (16) to scrub the smoke produced by the incinerator (11) via seawater, and a neutralization chamber (162) to spray an alkaline solution (165) onto the products produced by the scrubbing chamber (16), thereby removing hazardous particles before the incinerated wastes are discharged into the sea. A smoke-conveying pipe (17) is further provided to connect a chimney (112) of the incinerator to the scrubbing chamber (16), and a catalyst converter (18) is provided in the smoke conveying pipe (17) to remove some hazardous smoke particles by filtration and chemical conversion before the post-treatments conducted by the scrubbing chamber (16) and the neutralization chamber (162). <IMAGE>
