EPE to Prep Hazmat Inventory for Ship Recycling

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Environmental Protection Engineering S.A. (EPE) attends to prepare the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) for the entire Reederei Thomas Schulte fleet (33 container vessels) according to the new IMO Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships (Hong Kong Convention). Reederei Thomas Schulte GmbH & Co. KG also signed a contract with Germanischer Lloyd AG about the certification of the IHMs.

The Ship Recycling Convention adopted at a Diplomatic Conference in Hong Kong (May 2009), aims to improve standards of safety and reduce environmental pollution from the recycling of ships. The Convention will require ships to have an IHM, specific to each ship, a document that contains all the materials onboard a ship that may be hazardous to people's health or the environment, and that require careful handling or special awareness.
