It is the first agreement, nationally and internationally, for the decontamination and dismantling of ships out of use.
RECICLAUTO and Navantia have signed an agreement to carry out in the naval facilities the processes of decontamination and dismantling of ships out of use in an environmentally sustainable, safe for workers and economically efficient way. The target date for the starting of the activity, which also needs to have the commitment from different EU navies, is in May 2012.
This agreement is a vital turning point for the European project Recyship, since it avoids having to make very substantial investments in new facilities and docks for ship recycling that would make the project unfeasible.
