Abstract : At present, effulents resulting from wet air oxidation of shipboard wastes are too high in COD to be discharged overboard. This report describes a method whereby the effulent stream may be further oxidized, or 'polished', with hydrogen peroxide in order to meet the COD limits imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
