End of Life boats

Boat's end-of-life is a trendy topic at the moment, with the conference on Future of Yacht Recycling at METS just behind us.

We're pleased to announce a free event we're organising at the Paris boat show with our French member FIN - Federation of Nautical Industries and Reed Expo.

With the International Climate Conference COP21 taking place in Paris at the same time, we want to show to the wider public the efforts voluntarily made by the boating industry across the world and particularly in Europe to responsibly address the boat's end-of-life challenge.

On Tuesday, 8 December 2015 on the Scène Nautic at Nautic Paris boat show (Porte de Versailles) we will tell you all about it, in French and English.

Under the theme Boat’s end-of-life, truly the end? various speakers will look at how the boat’s end-of-life issue is being dealt with around the world (from North America and Australia to Japan and Europe) and showcase the French pioneering experience in this field.

It will go further in examining the future challenges related to waste reuse and recycling, the “design for disassembly” concept and more generally the transition towards a circular approach in the boating industry.

The conference is free of charge and open to visitors, exhibitors, policy-makers, press and anyone interested in the subject. Speakers include industry experts and the European Commission.
