29 July 2014 - United Kingdom: There are many ‘burning questions’ in the shipbreaking arena. And international specialists will discuss these hot topics at the forthcoming Ship Recycling Conference to be held in London on September 30-October 1.

In line with the central theme of how to be successful in the face of competition, the event at the Kensington Close Hotel will provide delegates with the details to help them ‘unlock’ the potential of cutting-edge European recycling facility projects.

In addition, the conference programme will offer a ‘spotlight on yards’ on a global scale, including in Turkey and Pakistan, while also providing a practical guide to achieving regulatory compliance in EU ship recycling. There will also be a one-day interactive workshop detailing best practices for beaching.

Speakers in London will include: Emilien Gasc from the Directorate-General for Environment at the European Commission; Jun Sun, technical officer at the International Maritime Organization; Ingvild Jenssen, founder and policy advisor at the NGO Shipbreaking Platform; and Arjen Uytendaal, director of the International Ship Recycling Association.
