Environmental Technology Guide

The ShipInsight In-Depth Guides have in a very short time become established around the world as a key tool for decision makers and purchasers within ship operation and shipowning organisations.

Most aspects of environmental protection are not likely to give any bene t to operators and will in fact result in extra costs for them to absorb. If they do have a complaint in connection with cleaning up shipping’s act, it is that all too often they are not getting the support they need from ports and terminals or from regulators happy to prosecute but not to provide facilities even where they are charged for.

As things stand, there is little chance that shipping can evade the environmental spotlight but it can take some solace from the fact that each new area of regulation leaves less to be regulated on further down the line.
