The challenges of recycling and their impact on maritime procurement
ImageA call to address the challenges of recycling and their impact on maritime procurement opened the sixth ShipServ TradeNet Conference. Key note speaker Carsten Melchiors, Secretary General of BIMCO, called on delegates to confront this issue which was approaching more rapidly than most people realized.
The presentation focused on the perceived immediate consequences for the description of hazardous materials in all components and all materials as consumed on board in the daily operation, including paints, lubricants, detergents etc.
Mr. Melchiors asserted that even though the new IMO binding instrument on ship recycling is still some years away, the realities today require that such inventories should be prepared already today for existing ships being recycled.
