Introduction/Challenge to New Ship Recycling

Current State of Ship Recycling

Recycling of end-of-life ships is Ship Recycling.
Ship Recycling commonly takes place in developing nations.

In the ship-breaking yards in these developing nations, a lack of work safety standards and preservation of the surrounding environment are concerned.
Under the poor working conditions, laborers sacrifice their life and health; moreover, water pollution and land pollution at the surrounding sites become an international issue.

Due to the deterioration of the seaborne shipping and booming shipping construction, the number of ship dismantling will increase.
Therefore, establishment of safe and environmentally sound ship recycling is urgently demanded.
