The report gives results of an evaluation of three systems aboard the Vulcanus, a Singapore-registered tanker that has been converted for incinerating industrial waste at sea. The ship has been operating for several years, disposing of various chemical wastes generated mainly in the European community. Industrial waste disposal by incineration at sea is also an option for U.S. waste management systems and thus is of interest to the EPA. Audit results include a summary of audit results, audit procedures, audit calculations, test results, recommendations, and audit standards.
