Waste Reduction and Recycling Tips for Ships & the Marine Industry


It is a scientific fact that over 70% of our planet is covered in water. With that in mind, wouldn’t the marine industry want to do everything possible to keep our oceans and environment clean? Environmental groups worldwide have had a close eye on the ship and marine industry due to recent actions to streamline waste and recycling and create a worldwide partnership for ship material recycling.

 

With the adoption of the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships in May 2009, steps towards quality improvements in ship recycling are being taken. Other members of the marine industry are taking notice on areas where recycling can be effective, even as new laws are put into place about waste reduction at sea.

 

Recycling Tips

 

The marine industry has many areas to institute effective recycling programs. 

 

Waste Reduction Tips

 

So what can be done in terms of waste reduction efforts to allow the marine industry more environmental pursuits? Proper waste handling is crucial to the safety and security of employees, the environment and the industry. Whenever you handle, store and dispose of harmful chemicals, bio-hazardous materials, paints, solvents, and any other products, do it by the book.

 

Case Study: Cruise Lines Recycle & Reduce Waste

Royal Caribbean International

Royal Caribbean International’s (RCI) Mercury has been named Recycler of the Year several times by the Port of San Diego.  RCI uses fluorescent lamp crushers that allow for crushing of glass onboard and also separation of mercury and metal end caps.  They also created a battery recycling program As a result, RCI has won several environmental awards.

Princess Cruises' Ships

Princess ships have biological treatment plants. These biological facilities break down and disinfect with a bio-reactor. Ten or more of Princess Cruises' ships have treatment systems for wastewater that use membrane filtration and ultraviolet light.

Conclusion

 

The ship and marine industry constitutes a wide variety of opportunities to recycle, reduce waste and better care for our environment. While some programs exist, more can be done to showcase the marine industries efforts to be good stewards of our environment.
