Port reception facilities have a double role: they contribute to the preservation of the oceans and to the decarbonisation of the maritime industry. In 2023 Euroshore International celebrates its 25th anniversary and will take the opportunity to welcome you and engage the dialogue during a one day event to discuss how they partner with the shipping industry to reduce its environmental impact.

The IMO MARPOL Convention, celebrating this year its 50th anniversary, was created in reaction of major pollutions created by oil spill. Over the years IMO developed bans to discharge at sea to protect the environment and port reception facilities used to collect ships generated waste. Today, we face the emergency of preserving marine biodiversity and ecosystems and Euroshore International pleads for the application of a zero discharge principle.

To answer that principle, adequate port reception facilities plays that collector role. Today there are contributing to one step further with the recovery and recycling of the waste collected. By this mean they contribute to the decarbonisation of the shipping industry.

The event will be the opportunity to understand better how port reception facilities work concretely, what are the challenges they face and the solutions they propose to ports and shipowners to reduce the carbon impact.

We therefore look forward to welcoming you on 11th May to develop the dialogue and cooperation to better achieve together a sustainable maritime sector.

Hôtel Le Châtelain, rue du Châtelain 17, 1000 Brussels
