The neglected side of shipping
Taking responsibility to solve a major sustainability and safety issue.
The current market of shipbreaking has a huge negative impact on people and planet. Over 70% of end-of-life vessels are dismantled in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and China. Most of these ships are ‘beached’ and taken apart manually. This causes severe harm to the workers and the environment. However, shipowners face a real challenge to abide to international and European laws and conventions whilst not having attractive alternatives to dismantle their assets in an environmentally sustainable and safe way.
Circular Maritime Technologies offers a solution to this challenge with a combination of innovative technology and automated processing. With its solution CMT shows that ship dismantling can be circular, safe and competitive.
