The European Environmental Ports Conference 2018 will take place on 16-17th May 2018. The event will bring together senior representatives from the global port community and shipping companies, as well as environmental policy-makers, academic experts, consultants, and technology providers.

Given the increasing focus on environmental regulations from the IMO and policy makers in the maritime sector, there is a growing responsibility and requirement of ports to reduce their environmental impact; it is an important time to share best practices and explore new technologies and methodologies in order to advance daily operations of a port with minimal ecological consequences.

The two-day event features informative presentations on the very latest challenges, solutions and developments in reducing emissions, pollution and energy consumption, as well as engaging discussion around the exciting potential of co-operation and symbiosis.

Key Topics Include:

  • Maintaining Compliance and Keeping up with Environmental Legislation
  • Tackling the Issue of Air Quality and Working Towards a Genuine Solution
  • Onshore Power Supply: A Potential Solution to Pollution
  • Improving Relationships with the Local Area
  • Key Practices in Removing Waste from Ports
  • Cruise Liner's Perspective: How the Cruise Industry is Improving Environmentally
  • Water Quality in Ports
  • Alternative Approaches and Ideas to Make Ports Greener
  • Environmental Strategies and Implementations Across all Sectors to Improve the Environment in Ports
