Abstract

The concept of the Environmentally Friendly Ship is seen by some as a standard to aim for in the medium to long term future. However, when a ship comes to the end of life and recycling phase an important point to note is that approximately 96% plus of an average ship is currently reused or recycled. Therefore the main concern with an end of life ship is not how much on board the ship can be recycled, but rather in which manner these ship recycling activities are carried out and what effect on the workers' health and safety and the impact on the surrounding environment do they have? In this paper, through research of the ship recycling industry and referring to previous ship recycling process analysis carried out by the authors, the various hazardous materials and processes involved in ship recycling will be documented, a link established to the marine design cycle and a methodology for a 'design for ship recycling' introduced.
