Global Maritime Environmental Congress

Monday, September 21, 2009

For two days, industry experts from all over the world will attend the Global Maritime Environmental Congress (GMEC) in Hamburg to discuss developments, to present results, and to set a new course for sustainable green shipping. Patronage for this event, which is to be held regularly in future, has been accepted by Chancellor Angela Merkel.

From 7 to 8 September 2010, more than 700 leading representatives from industry, government, academia, navies, tourism and environmental protection will meet in Hamburg to discuss specific solutions for environment-friendly, sustainable shipping. The three Chairmen of the event are Micky Arison, Corrado Antonini and Spyros Polemis.

GMEC will address subjects such as green design and building for passenger vessels, navy and merchant ships, and their operation and subsequent recycling. It will come up with solutions to energy and emission problems at sea, the use of innovative propulsion concepts, and requirements for modern waste management, and provide answers to questions of environmental protection in ports and regional maritime areas.

The new conference provides the ideal setting, with Hamburg as its venue, and with its timing during SMM 2010, a ship building fair, with nearly 2,000 exhibitors and more than 52,000 trade visitors.

“The conference is vitally important,” says Corrado Antonini, CEO of Fincantieri, Italy’s largest shipbuilding company, and also a member of the Board of GMEC, “because the development of innovative, efficient technologies is essential to the future of the whole of the maritime industry.”

This conference, to be held every two years in future, is organised by Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH in cooperation with Jochen Deerberg, Owner and CEO of the world’s leading maritime equipment supplier of waste treatment and disposal systems.
