Abstract
Because of improper past disposal of municipal wastes into ocean waters, the study investigated the use of waste incinerator ships. The following points were studied well-burned residues are harmless to marine species; there will be no concentration or transmission of toxic substances through the marine food chain; floatable residue capable of littering can be eliminated; air pollution will be prevented along coastal areas; residue will not migrate from defined deposition sites. The report represents the investigations of each of these aspects over a 5-year period.
