Green Ship Recycling
Increasing waste and its improper management are one of the crises that countries across the world face these days. The rise in the disposal of waste materials is alarmingly polluting the land, air and water as never before. However, the concrete efforts in the past few decades have made remarkable changes in our disposable culture and also opened doors for a number of alternatives to waste disposal. Among them, recycling has been widely accepted as one of the fruitful methods for waste management.
With the rise in awareness towards the maritime environment, there have been several changes in the process, which have given rise to a new term - green ship recycling. As a viable alternative to other methods of shipbreaking that makes negative effects on the environment, green ship recycling has been introduced across the world. As a way of responsible ship recycling, this method reduces the amount of waste and also keeps the waste materials from shipbreaking out of the beaches, reducing its impact on the environment.
