Final Report - SHIPDISMANTL (Cost effective and environmentally sound dismantling of obsolete vessels)

Project ID: 12561
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The final report drafted for the SHIPDISMANTL project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme, is an extensive document, indeed, providing a lengthy historical perspective into current ship dismantling processes and recycling activities. The document also provides a clear overview as to future best practices and means through which further improvements are possible.

In addition, an inventory of materials found onboard a ship, such as asbestos used in the past for insulation, introduces strict paint recycling requirements. Lastly, the report categorises hazardous and non-hazardous processes as well as byproducts, looking into means and methods for their treatment which can reduce their environmental impact.
