The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) is set to host an Environmental Intelligence in Maritime Seminar Series to focus on Port Waste Reception Facilities. The seminar, to be held in Norfolk, Virginia on April 16, will include speakers and discussion from regulators, industry and port interests.
 
“MARPOL regulations include requirements for port waste receptions facilities. These facilities are often not available, not ‘affordable,’ or not operationally practical,” stated NAMEPA’s Executive Director, Carleen Lyden-Kluss. “We are excited to bring together industry, government, users and suppliers to discuss this ever present topic and explore strategies for compliance that work for ships and ports alike.” 
 
NAMEPA has confirmed speakers from the Port of Virginia, Maersk Line, Lloyd’s Register, Stericycle, Blank Rome, Virginia Port Authority and USCG.
 
The seminar will be held on April 16 from 1-4 p.m. at the Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center, One Waterside Drive, Norfolk, Virginia.
