New seminar recycles yachts

ADVERTISEMENT

METS, the three-day marine equipment show held in Amsterdam each November, has added a one-day conference on the eve of METS, the Future of Yacht Recycling conference.

The one-day conference will address the main issues in the environmentally responsible dismantling and recycling of old boats.

The conference agenda will include topics that focus on the technical and commercial challenges as well as the opportunities presented by what has become known as “end-of-life” of EOL boats.

The opening day’s keynote presentation will discuss why the yachting industry must engage in the process of dismantling and responsibly recycling the boats of yesterday, and how other industries have already adapted and shown the way. Other sessions will discuss how many yachts are involved, how they break down, the environmental issues involved in abandoned and sunken vessels, just how to dismantle and recycle a yacht, and getting owners to accept this cost for EOL boats.

The conference will also will feature an exhibition area where contractors, suppliers and advisers can discuss their products and services with delegates.

It will be held on Nov. 16 in RAI Amsterdam, the day before the Marine Equipment Trade Show gets under way.
