Waste Dumping Monitoring

The disposal of waste by waste dumping vessel is strictly controlled by the government. For every qualified vessel to carry out dumping action, marine dumping permit should be granted by associated government authority to accept monitoring and recording of vessel’s position and dumping activities at the sea.

The government authority requires every vessel to install a standardized equipment to ensure that any loading or dumping operations are compliant with the regulations. The introduction of FEMU enables the government to monitor, record and retrieve the vessel position and dumping activities data in real-time by remote access from their control center. The FEMU is now one of the criteria for obtaining the marine dumping permits in Hong Kong.
