Vessels and rigs are valuable resources for secondary metals and other used equipment, but these materials also contain hazardous substances required for the proper functioning of the equipment or accumulated during years of operation. Asbestos, Ozone Depleting Substances in cooling systems, wall bound Mercury in tanks and piping; it goes without saying that these materials must be handled with constant care for the environment and the people working at the yard.

With our Ship Recycling Waste Balance methodology, we track and record all hazardous substances and waste flows to final disposal, providing tangible evidence of environmentally sound waste management and regulatory compliance.

Avoid liabilities and reputational damage

Proper waste management is essential for responsible and compliant recycling. This does not stop at the gates of the recycling yard. As a ship- or rig owner, you are legally responsible as the waste producer. To protect people and the environment, and to avoid any future liabilities or reputational damage, you must assure yourself that all waste is treated according to international regulations and industry standards.
