Hydroxyl Systems (Victoria, Canada) was awarded a contract by Royal Caribbean Cruises (Miami, Florida) for the turnkey supply of two Hydroxyl CleanSea® advanced wastewater purification systems. The CleanSea® systems will effectively process all black water and grey water generated aboard the 2,500 passenger Radiance of the Seas and 2,000 passenger Celebrity Summit cruise vessels. As a result of implementing Hydroxyl’s technology, Royal Caribbean will reliably exceed stringent Alaska State environmental regulations by 50% for effluent discharge within sensitive aquatic environments along the Alaskan coastline.
Hydroxyl Systems provides biofilm carrier and advanced oxidation technology for wastewater treatment. CleanSea®, iMBR™, and iFAS™ proprietary technologies are used in the treatment of biodegradable and refractory wastewater constituents for marine, industrial, municipal, and decentralized applications. Utilizing patent-pending solutions such as Advanced Oxidation Technologies (AOT), CleanSea® efficiently and cost-effectively treats a wide range of marine wastewater, including blackwater, galley and accommodation greywater, and laundry greywater. The resulting effluent is clear, odorless and fully-disinfected, supporting and surpassing the parameters governing Alaska’s stringent wastewater discharge regulations. CleanSea® enables discharge even in protected and embayed areas with minimal flushing action and even while anchored or docked. CleanSea® also includes a complete solids management system to enable complete autonomy when dealing with marine wastewater. A highly efficient sludge dewatering and drying process delivers sludge residue that can be fully incinerated or landed to shore.
