A one-day conference will be run at METS this year addressing the main issues in the environmentally responsible dismantling and recycling of redundant boats.

The Future of Recycling conference will be held on Monday 16 November 2015 in RAI Amsterdam, the day before METS gets underway.

The conference will look at why the global yachting industry has to seriously engage in the process of dismantling and responsibly recycling the boats of yesterday, in order to make way for the boats of tomorrow, as well as how other industries have already adapted and shown the way.

It will also feature a dedicated exhibition area where specialist contractors, suppliers and advisers can discuss their products and services with delegates and trade visitors from all sectors of the yachting industry.

The conference agenda will consist of key topics that focus on both the technical/ commercial challenges, issues and solutions facing the industry and the significant opportunities presented by what has become known as 'End-of-Life Boats' (ELB).

Powered by METS and supported by ICOMIA, the conference entitled The Future of Yacht Recycling will be staged by Quaynote Communications in partnership with YachtMedia, and will form part of the annual METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show) in the Netherlands.

The introduction will be by Geert Dijks, Director of HISWA, the Netherlands Water Sports Association and will set the tone for the day.

Specialist speakers from the ICOMIA Environmental and Marinas Groups will feature in presentations and panel discussions covering the background to the present situation, and its effects on the yachting industry and marina operations.
