The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Thursday (16 May) informed the shipping community that exhaust gas cleaning residues generated by ships are classified as Toxic Industrial Waste (TIW) under Singapore’s Environmental Public Health (Toxic Industrial Waste) Regulations.

“Under the Environmental Public Health (Toxic Industrial Waste) Regulations, TIW must be collected and managed by licensed Toxic Industrial Waste Collectors (TIWCs),” it stated.

“Ships that wish to dispose of exhaust gas cleaning residues in Singapore are required to engage a licensed TIWC for the collection and disposal of such residues.”

According to the MPA, Singapore licensed TIWCs that may be able to collect scrubber residues generated by ships include:

  • Aroma Chemical Pte Ltd
  • Chem-Solv Technologies Pte Ltd
  • Cramoil Singapore Pte Ltd
  • ECO Special Waste Management Pte Ltd
  • Fair Chem Industries Pte Ltd
  • Huayang Technologies Pte Ltd
  • Mencast Offshore & Marine Pte Ltd
  • NSL Oilchem Waste Management Pte Ltd
  • Technochem Environmental Complex Pte Ltd
  • Unifine Chemical Pte Ltd

TIWCs can arrange for the residues to be offloaded in packaged form or in intermediate bulk container tanks directly to trucks and MPA licensed harbour craft for ships at berth and at anchorages, respectively.

A complete list of licensed TIWCs can be found on the National Environmental Agency website here.
