Abstract:

This technical note characterizes wastes generated in the drydock environment and recommends treatment methods to remove contaminants. Heavy metals are primary contaminants. Theoretical and experimental analysis of heavy metal treatment methods are presented. This analysis indicates that sulfide precipitation would be a prime candidate for heavy metal removal but would require further research and development. Author
