1 Working together for a safer world World Maritime Day – October 22 – 24, 2014 IMO – Port Reception Facility Development Ginger Garte, Americas Environmental Manager

2 World Maritime Day Sustainability: Risks for Ocean Industries ocean industry businesses face increasingly complex challenges

3 90% Goods brought to us by ships Submarine Cables Offshore Wind Cobalt Crusts Deepwater Oil Fisheries

4 World Maritime Day Marine Ecosystem Impact 278 offices delivering services in 228 countries Some 7,500 employees of 90 nationalities 101 companies Celebrating our 250 year anniversary this year Four business divisions: Marine Transportation (rail sector) Energy (ModuSpec, Scandpower) Management Systems (LRQA) Anticipated annual turnover $1.0bn

5 World Maritime Day MARPOL Annex V To prevent pollution of garbage/residues from ships IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee MEPC began meeting in 1973 shortly after IMO adopted the Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships or MARPOL. One important regulation in MARPOL for ports: “the Government of each Party is to ensure the provision for reception of ship ‐ generated residues”

6 World Maritime Day MARPOL Annex V discharge standards – January 1, 2013 All Oceans are essentially a “no discharge zone” with the exception of food wastes (which may have to be comminuted or ground (25 mm screen) in some areas. Dry Cargo Residues if not harmful to marine environment (HME) and in small quantities.

7 MARPOL imposes one important obligation to the Government of each Party, To provide PRF for ship-generated residues and garbage that cannot be discharged into the sea PRF must be adequate to meet the needs of ships using the port, Without causing undue delay to ships Incentivize ships use of PRF to comply with MARPOL and to minimize discharges to sea. (Disposal of ships waste to take place in an environmentally appropriate way) Sustaining ocean health and productivity requires responsible use and stewardship by all users. IMO MARPOL Annex V Prevention of pollution from ships garbage

9 Port Reception Facility Tools PRFD convey current global PRF information, PRFD to be user friendly; PRFD populated w/ all available PRF PRFD by port/Country; waste category International Organization for Standardization ISO Standards Promoting Environmentally Sound Management of Ship’s Waste: Shipboard Waste Management Port Reception Facility Planning and Operation *Guide to Good Practice on PRF found on GISIS website: Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS) Port Reception Facility Database (PRFD)

10 World Maritime Day PRF Gaps Member states not consistently updating PRFD “the Government of each Party is to ensure the provision for reception of ship ‐ generated residues” = challenge for certain wastes/residuals Inadequate PRF submissions to MEPC from Port States were not representative of global fleet

15 World Maritime Day Management of Wastes at PRF ISO Key to communicate best practices & facilitate tours of port/vendors/ship Know or request international, national and local regulations for waste streams Waste Management Planning SHIP – PORT – VENDOR stakeholder engagement Waste segregation/sorting stations Storage transfer options Waste minimizing options Waste handling equipment (age) Recycling options $$ Treatment technologies

16 Future Port Reception Facilities New technology and waste stream processing capabilities shore side Lean supply chain practices offer efficiencies/savings Focus on mutually beneficial way forward for Cleaner Oceans Best Management Practices for Environmentally Sound Management of ships waste Aboard and Ashore Embracing Concepts of “Cradle-to-Cradle” management of ships’ waste; principles of Reduce, Re-use Recycle and ReThink Environmentally safe ultimate disposal … Working toward keeping ships’ waste out of the oceans. Disposal of ships waste to take place in an environmentally appropriate way

20 World Maritime Day Summary – Port Reception Facility Adequacy A lot of work has been done and progress made Significant gaps still exist Tools need to be effective How to incentivize use of PRF where government funding not available Increase in PRF Capacity Focus on mutually beneficial way forward for Cleaner Oceans: Best Management Practices for Environmentally Sound Management of ships waste Aboard and Ashore Enhanced Record Keeping and Reporting for ship Embracing Concepts of “Cradle-to-Cradle” management of ships’ waste; principles of Reduce, Re-use and Recycle Environmentally safe ultimate disposal Working toward keeping ships’ waste out of the oceans. Disposal of ships waste to take place in an environmentally appropriate way

21 World Maritime Day MARPOL Annex V details Discharge of all forms of plastics, including garbage containing plastic, into the sea, is prohibited! An international treaty and domestic law prohibit discharge of most garbage from ships under strict conditions, except for a limited list of materials. Outside Special Areas designated under MARPOL Annex V: With the exception of discharging cleaning agents in washing water; the ship must be en route. Comminuted or ground food wastes (capable of passing through a screen with openings no larger than 25mm) may be discharged not less than 3 nautical miles from the nearest land. Other food wastes may be discharged not less than 12 nautical miles from the nearest land. Non-harmful cargo residues may be discharged not less than 12 nautical miles from the nearest land. Cleaning agents or additives in cargo hold, deck and external surfaces washing water may be discharged only if they are not harmful to the marine environment. Inside Special Areas designated under MARPOL Annex V, more stringent discharge requirements apply for the discharges of food wastes and cargo residues. Consult Annex V and the shipboard garbage management plan for details. Discharge of any type of garbage must be entered in the Garbage Record Book

23 World Maritime Day Port Reception Facility key points to tackling adequacy Without causing delay to ships = know market share and break down by ships type (ST) using port Adequate to meet the needs of the ships = know ST waste streams generated/landed Port to ensure adequate facilities = to quantities and wastes landed ashore Does not provide mariners with a disincentive to use them; Contributes to the improvement of the marine environment = “allow for the ultimate disposal of ships’ wastes to take place in an environmentally appropriate way.”

24 World Maritime Day PRF understood responsibility: Port/terminal operators PRFs meets national & local waste handling permit requirements for environmental & public health and waste are managed so that wastes and residues removed from ships cannot readily enter the water Common discharges: solid waste, oily wastes, sewage, paint related wastes, recyclables Challenging waste streams: EGCS wash water, BW, gray water, electronics, hazardous wastes, economizer wash water, international garbage
