Ship Recycling Congress 2020

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The 8th edition of this Ship Recycling Congress will provide an insight into the latest updates on the EU Regulation 1257/2013 and the capacity issues, will focus on sustainable ship recycling, recycling of vessels with no EU flag, ratification of IMO's Hong Kong convention, the global market overview, the Inventory Hazardous Materials, and much more.

The Congress will bring together senior executives and experts from ship owners, ship operators, ship yards, major associations, cash buyers, and green owners, class societies, and others, to discuss the latest changes, challenges and developments within the industry.

Ship breaking allows the materials from the ship, especially steel, to be recycled and made into new products. This lowers the demand for mined iron ore and reduces energy use in the steelmaking process. While ship breaking is sustainable, there are concerns about the use of poorer countries without stringent environmental legislation. It is also considered one of the world's most dangerous industries and very labour-intensive.

Join us in Amsterdam on 29th - 30th January and do not miss the opportunity to meet key representatives of the industry.
