International Conference on Ship Recycling 7-9 April World Maritime University Malmö, Sweden Recycling is undoubtedly the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of ships at the end of their operational lives. Nearly all of the materials on board can be recycled, reused, or refurbished. Ship recycling is faced with numerous challenges and there is growing public awareness of the associated environmental, safety, and health hazards. The issue calls for continued scrutiny and debate.
International and non-governmental organizations, governments, shipowners, shipyards, classification societies, universities, and research institutes are among the many entities anticipated to participate in the Conference. SHIPREC 2013 will afford the opportunity to share knowledge and information and exchange innovative ideas and solutions.
