“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.
