ship_rec: Sustainable Ship Recycling by Adopting Integrated Waste Management Approaches in China (EU-China Environmental Sustainability Programme, 2013-2016)
The overall objective of the action is to improve the sustainability of ship recycling in China. Sustainable and integrated ship breaking activities could provide a big amount of secondary materials and China is seriously lacking of resources. However shipbreaking is also creating many environmental problems, in particular the generation of hazardous wastes and discharge of pollutants, e.g. waste oils, heavy metals and other toxic substances like asbestos. This project intends to improve resource efficiency and pollution control as well as occupational health and safety conditions.
Projectpartners: Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, National Solid Waste Management Centre of China, China Association of Resource Comprehensive Utilization
