2nd Stakeholder Workshop and Training, 20 November 2015

DSC04208 The 2nd stakeholder workshop & training took place in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China, which was attended by more than 30 people. The workshop focused on the upcoming sustainability assessment for Chinese ship recycling facilities as well as on the requirements of the EU Ship Recycling Regulation. During the workshop, a draft Checklist for Sustainability Assessment was presented and comments and suggestions from Chinese ship recyclers gathered. Further, a quick survey among the present ship recyclers was conducted in order to learn about the economic situation of the Chinese ship recycling sector. The result revealed that in 2013 ship recyclers were running at capacities between 70 and 35%, whereas in 2015 it was as low as between 50 and 10%. Also all ship recyclers replied that they are planning to apply for the EU List of ship recylcling facilities located in third countries.
