Responsible and compliant ship recycling is a significant part of the circular economy, keeping resources in use for as long as possible and minimizing waste.
Odfjell supports and follows the recommendations of the Norwegian Shipowners' Association, the EU and the IMO on ship recycling. We are an active participant in the Recycling Forum of the Norwegian Shipowners' Association and have dedicated personnel to follow up on recycling issues.
We encourage ratification and implementation of the IMO Hong Kong convention to have a mandatory international regulation for ship recycling.
Should an Odfjell ship be earmarked for recycling, the process shall be in full compliance with applicable rules and regulations of the ship's flag state and applicable international rules and regulations. The Ship Recycling Facility shall be compliant with the rules and regulations of the ship's flag state and applicable international conventions.
