10th Ship Recycling Congress

Date: 1st February 2023 - 2nd February 2023 Location: Amsterdam - The Netherlands

Ship breaking or ship demolition is a type of ship disposal involving the breaking up of ships for either a source of parts, which can be sold for re-use, or for the extraction of raw materials, chiefly scrap. Ship breaking allows the materials from the ship, especially steel, to be recycled and made into new products. This lowers the demand for mined iron ore and reduces energy use in the steelmaking process. Equipment on board the vessel can also be reused. While ship breaking is sustainable, there are concerns about the use of poorer countries without stringent environmental legislation. It is also considered one of the world’s most dangerous industries and very labour-intensive.

ACI is pleased to announce the 10th Ship Recycling Congress. The event will focus on the latest and upcoming EU regulations from 2022 and 2023, Transparency and Collaboration in Ship Recycling, IHM requirements, Evolving Sustainability and the Future of Ship Recycling

The conference will highlight the challenges to promote a responsible & sustainable future for the green ship recycling industry by developing transparency measures and complying with human & environmental rights.

The two day conference will consist of a number of informative presentations followed by interactive Q&A sessions, presentations giving a deep insight on the views shared from different aspects of the ship recycling process, as well as round tables and panel discussions to further involve the delegates.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
