ISRA had a meeting with NGO Ship Breaking at the ship recycling facility Galloo in Ghent.

Two items were on the table:

  1. The Evaluation of the EU Ship Recycling Regulation (1257/2013)
    NGO SB and ISRA agreed to exchange views on the evaluation of the EU SRR and the preparation on new policies. The first step in this evaluation is the call for evidence, closing at the 30 June.
  2. The preparation of the “Ship Recycling Lab” to be organized in Rotterdam 20-21 September (see below).

The event will bring together forward-thinking stakeholders from the maritime, recycling and steel sectors, financial institutions and policy makers to showcase and exchange ideas for best practices and strategies for ship demolition, design, waste management and material recovery in line with ethical circular policy goals.

Providing visibility to companies that have developed solutions, including innovative cutting techniques, new state-of-the-art waste handling procedures, cradle to cradle concept design, and clean steel breakthrough technologies aimed at achieving a zero-carbon steel making process, the Lab intends to set the bar for tomorrow’s ship recycling.

Come join us and 200+ progressive stakeholders for networking opportunities, inspiring keynote speaker sessions, thought-provoking presentations, interactive panel discussions, a photo exhibition from Bangladesh and a live performance at the iconic Kunsthal museum in the shipping hub of Rotterdam in September!
