ROCKLEDGE, FL — March 16, 2020 — Mainstream Engineering Corporation has been awarded a contract from the US Navy to minimize wastewater discharges.
Navy vessels must follow local and federal regulations when disposing wastewater into the sea. These regulations prohibit discharging greywater in many areas. Therefore, the greywater generated by the galley, scullery, and other shipboard operations must be stored aboard the ship until the wastewater can be safely offloaded shore side or discharged at sea outside littoral water limits.
Mainstream Engineering is adapting a greywater recycling system originally developed for recycling Army kitchen wastewater to resolve this Navy issue. The system performance will be demonstrated through prototype evaluation.
