Our recovery service

Our recovery service



This waste is produced by boats ; the black water coming from the toilets ( containing nitrogeneous organic matter and fecal germs) and the grey water coming from the bathrooms and the kitchens (containing grease, detergent, solvents, and organic debris).

This effluent represents a threat to the environment; particularly to the marine ecosystem (reduction of the amount of oxygen in water) but also to the public health.

Our large fleet of trucks and pump-boats thus allows us to meet all the needs as far as the collection of waste water is concerned, either by sea or by road.
The latter are fitted with lengths of suction pipes allowing us to carry out pump-outs up to 90m. We also have all the connectors which are necessary to connect to the boat (firemen’s connector, camlock, flange, storz, screw-in connectors…)




International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL)

Adoption: 1973 (Convention), 1978 (1978 Protocol), 1997 (Protocol - Annex VI); Entry into force: 2 October 1983 (Annexes I and II).

The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) is the main international convention covering prevention of pollution of the marine environment by ships from operational or accidental causes.

The Convention includes regulations aimed at preventing and minimizing pollution from ships - both accidental pollution and that from routine operations - and currently includes six technical Annexes. Special Areas with strict controls on operational discharges are included in most Annexes.
