Who is responsible for supply of scrubbing agents and scrubber waste removal?

Hybrid or closed-loop scrubbers will require scrubbing agents and will create waste. Therefore, you should allocate responsibility for arranging and paying for the supply of the scrubbing agents and waste removal. In the absence of an agreement, owners will be responsible for costs and loss of time for this supply and the removal of scrubber waste. Open-loop scrubbers do not use chemical agents but can produce waste – again, you should allocate responsibility for arranging and paying for the disposal of this waste.
