Spills in ports

Cedre Information Day, 28th September 2017, Paris.

Spills in ports are relatively frequent and may be due to a wide variety of causes: shipping accidents, vessel bunkering operations, accidental bilge water discharge, failure of industrial facilities or port infrastructures, runoff from sewer systems or rainwater drainage pipes, dropping of containers... Spill prevention and response are therefore a common issue for different types of port terminals. However, each facility has its own specificities according to its size, activities, layout, organisation and equipment. It is with this as a backdrop that port authorities and specialists in the field shared their experience and offering feedback from past incidents at the 2017 Cedre Information Day.
