HazMat & Environmental Services
The accidents and substandard environmental practices in the industry, have for decades, given the global ship breaking industry a flawed image. Cleaning, dismantling and recycling ships is the most environmentally appropriate form of disposal of an obsolete vessel. However, the complete lack of awareness to the importance of an effective HazMat pre-cleaning program puts the environment and the recycling teams unnecessarily at risk.
At MRC, a rigorous HazMat identification, removal, handling and disposal plan is established before any work is conducted on board a vessel. Any wastes that can be converted downstream into useable petroleum products or waste-to-energy are also identified during this planning. MRC has a team of expert, certified HazMat management technicians, who inspect every vessel, sample various wastes and substances for testing at accredited laboratories and develop a vessel specific waste removal and management profile. Due to the size of MRC’s certified team, we are able to conduct inspections and manage removals for asbestos and mould, radioactive wastes, bulk and residual fuels and oils, sludge and engine room bilge cleaning, general non-hazardous removals, PCB’s, paint removal and manage all the miscellaneous chemicals found aboard obsolete vessels.
