Hi, I am working on a dissertation about Recycling of Shipyard Blasting Waste. Is there any legislation regarding such waste (spent blast media and paint chips whether hazardous or nonhazardous), where can I find the information? I would like to know (if possible) how the shipyards currently treat the waste.

Dear M. Chunping Qi,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Ship recycling is not a topic that the EEA follows in depth. We would therefore suggest that you consult the following pages, that may be of interest for you:

- DG Environment Ship Recycling: https://ec.europa.eu/environment/waste/ships/index.htm
- European list of ship recycling facilities: https://ec.europa.eu/environment/waste/ships/list.htm
- EU legislation on ship recycling: https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/legislation.htm

Please contact DG Environment for further information on this topic via https://europa.eu/european-union/contact/write-to-us_en.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
