At issue is a conflict between Asian shipbreaking yards adhering to the Hong Kong Convention on the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships and the European Union's Ship Recycling Regulation that allows European-flagged to only be recycled at EU-approved yards.
Other key topics on the agenda will be the current industry boom, keeping up with scrapping demands and the right choice of yard.
There will also be updates on regional shipbreaking yards and rising performance standards within Asian yards.
Among the speakers will be SKM Bhimani, environmental compliance director, Anglo-Eastern Ship Management Ltd; Simon Bennett, general manager, sustainable development, China Navigation Co Pte Ltd/Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Ltd; CH Yeh, chairman, Ship Recycling Committee of the Asian Shipowners Association; Keiji Tomoda, chairman, ship recycling committee of the Japanese Shipowners' Association and Ajinkya Kadam, manager, fleet operations, Golden Stena Weco Singapore, among others.
