(Video) How to Recycle a Maersk Triple-E


A breaking video released by Animation outlines a new initiative aimed at efficiently recycling a Maersk Triple-E container ship.

European ship-owners have recently called for an approval of the 2009 IMO Hong Kong Convention in a bid to ensure that all those recycling their ships are not posing any unnecessary risks to the environment and to human safety.

Under the Triple-E recycling plan entitled ‘cradle-to-cradle passport’, every nut and bolt of the ship can be identified and separated into either a low or high-grade steel category so that recycling is more efficient. Copper wires, waste and hazardous materials can also be identified to increase safety during the recycling process.

This initiative comes at a crucial time as many ship-owners are opting to demolish their ships, as a result of a recent decline in commodity shipping, which has caused a sharp increase in ship demolition rates in 2015, according to the Wall Street Journal.
