RCL Project Genesis to be Equipped with CleanSea

Monday, June 25, 2007
Royal Caribbean’s Genesis Class vessels will introduce numerous technological advancements within the cruise industry. In particular, leading-edge environmental technology continues as a high priority in support of the Royal Caribbean’s “Save the Waves” initiatives. Hydroxyl’s CleanSea advanced wastewater purification systems will enable the Genesis Class vessels to reliably treat all biodegradable water streams generated onboard prior to safe discharge to the ocean. With CleanSea in operation onboard, Genesis Class vessels will be able to operate within sensitive aquatic and coastal regions, while minimizing their impacts on the environment. Under the terms of the contracts, Hydroxyl’s CleanSea technology will eliminate compounds from wastewater to levels lower than those stipulated by the most stringent ocean discharge standards in the world.

The CleanSea systems supplied for the Genesis Class vessels will employ Hydroxyl’s ActiveCell biofilm carrier process for high-rate biodegradation of wastewater onboard, as well as Hydroxyl’s patent-pending ActiveFloat dissolved air flotation equipment, for particulate solids removal. Both proprietary technologies enhance wastewater treatment process reliability as well as decrease space requirements and system lifecycle costs. Comparable CleanSea systems are operating or are in the process of installation onboard eight other Royal Caribbean vessels.
