Green ship recycling? CTI helps!

Feb 20, 2015 3:34:00 PM

The recycling industry has changed dramatically over the last few years, and it is continually developed to be safe and green.

From the International Maritime Organization (IMO) side, as the “Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships” was adopted in May 2009, a series of new requirements focusing on Occupational Health and Safe and Environment of recycling industry had been introduced. In terms of European Union, the “Ship Recycling Regulation” is in the process of ratification. Meanwhile, it is noteworthy that China published “Green Ship Recycling General Regulation” in 2005 to define the requirements on environment, health and safety. Accordingly, ship dismantling in China should take all relative regulations into consideration.

To enhance the green recycling capability of ship recycling yard, and to help ship owner to provide compliance evidence, CTI provides a package resolution, including:

1.      Hazardous materials inspection;
