As regulations for the superyacht industry become stricter, captains and crew must discharge wastewater with caution as they bear the responsibility for what is expelled into the marine environment.
Sewage discharge, also known as blackwater, contains pollutants including metals, toxins, and pathogens. Regulations like MARPOL permits blackwater to be discharged from a superyacht no less than 12NM from the nearest land. However, many crews find themselves following these exact instructions and still end up failing to meet MARPOL’s requirements.
Head of Superyachts Chris Warde and environmental specialist Per Österberg will be discussing the impact environmental regulations are having on the Superyacht industry.
They will cover some of the challenges that Superyacht Captains, crew and management companies will face in their daily operations.
Sign up for the event which is on the 25 November 14:00- 14:45 GMT
