The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has classified residues arising from exhaust gas cleaning systems as toxic industrial waste (TIW).

Therefore, the authority said that ships planning to dispose of these residues, classified as TIW under Singapore’s environmental public health regulations, need to engage toxic industrial waste collectors (TIWCs).

Under the rules, TIW must be collected and managed by licensed toxic industrial waste collectors.

“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,” MPA said.

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.
