The treatment of potentially polluting wrecks

Cedre Information Day, 6 October 2003,  Paris.

From rusted shipwrecks of the second World War seeping oil now, to new wrecks requiring emergency intervention, potentially polluting wrecks are numerous and bring about many problems, to begin with three fundamental questions: should we intervene? What for? With what money?
The first question supposes to establish that there is a pollution or a pollution threat. The second one supposes an agreement on a common objective. The third one implies a willingness or a constraint to pay.
True to the tradition of its information days, Cedre built this one around two major subjects, firts the identification of the risks and measures to be taken, second a set of case studies highlighting the range of solutions which have been used. Naturally, the Prestige dossier underway was in the mind of all at discussion time.
