  1. Ship RecyclingAn Overview of Regulatory and Industry Developments Environmental IssuesBrief Summary of Latest developments

  2. Environmental Summary Ballast Water • Availability of technology to meet the 2009 deadline – no • Possible delay in application of the Convention – 2010 or 2011 Anti-fouling Systems • Total of 24 states have ratified the Convention representing 16.63% of the world’s tonnage – Panama announced it would ratify the Convention this year (adding the state plus 21.46% in tonnage) • Note EU will not allow any ship with tin-based anti-fouling on its hull after 1st January 2008 Reception Facilities • IMO Correspondence Group • PRF Forum • Advance Notification Forms • Waste delivery receipt • Guide to Good Practice • Recycling options

  3. Environmental Summary Biofouling – an emerging issue • New Zealand, Australia, UK, FOEI and the IUCN proposal for a new work item on Biofouling (Development of international measures for minimizing the translocation of invasive species through biofouling of ships) was agreed and submissions invited to the BLG sub-Committee – consideration would be given to: • developing Guidelines for the adoption by MEPC • linking measures to the AFS Convention • linking measures to the BWM Convention • developing a new Convention • Environmental Committee considerations; • Heriot-Watt University Report • Targeted solutions • vegetative, animal, bacteria (slime) • high risk vessels • Brushing not a satisfactory option/solution

  4. Ship Recycling • Regulatory Developments • IMO • Regional • INTERTANKO Activity • Issues for Consideration

  5. Ship Recycling • Regulatory Developments • IMO • May 2007 - Intersessional Working Group • July 2007 - MEPC 56, Working Group • January 2008 - Intersessional Working Group • April 2008 - MEPC 57, Working Group (Articles and Regulations) • June 2008 - IMO Council (endorse date for Diplomatic Conference) • October 2008 - MEPC 58 Working Group, (finalize draft Convention) • April 2009 - Diplomatic Conference, (Adoption of Convention)

  6. Ship Recycling • Regulatory Developments • IMO • MEPC 56, Working Group, July 2007 • Slow progress on operational and practical matters • Bilateral agreement discussion prevailed (party states and non-party states) • Consideration of Guidelines after Convention adoption • Serious concern for industry in terms of IHM development • Intersessional Working Group, January 2008 • Review draft Convention, more detailed discussion on: • IHM • Surveys • Ready for recycling criteria definition (IWG submission)

  7. Ship Recycling • Regulatory Developments • EU • Green Paper, ‘Better Ship Dismantling’ • Global solution through IMO, but… • Opens possibility for regulating through European or International waste instruments • Suggests standards for global recycling facilities to European environmental and safety levels • Port state control of suspected vessels • Provides basis for the development of interim measures (voluntary and/or mandatory) • Industry voluntary action promoted (Interim period)

  8. Ship Recycling • INTERTANKO Activity • Interim Measures INTERTANKO Interim Strategy adopted in essence by the Industry Working Group (IWG) • INTERTANKO • Hazardous Materials Inventory • Recycling Facility • Minimize residues on board • Ship Recycling Plan • Delivery Declaration • IWG • Yard Selection • Inventory of Hazardous Materials • Gas Freeing • Ship Recycling Plan • Reporting to Flag State

  9. Ship Recycling • Issues for Consideration • Inventory of Hazardous Materials • Delivered with all new buildings • Suppliers declaration requirements • Existing ships • Gathering of information • Documentation • Survey (flag) and Inspection (port) • Guidelines • Development of IHM • Sampling Plan/Guideline

  10. Ship Recycling • Issues for Consideration cntd. • Hazardous Materials • Construction limitations (prohibition and restriction) • Technical Group decision – bypass other Conventions? • Safe and environmentally sound removal of hazardous substances • ‘Green’ facilities • Authorized facilities • Convention implementation • Bilateral agreements • Readiness of recycling industry • Availability of green market/facilities for owners
