RECYCLING: The inaugural Future of Yacht Recycling Conference starts at 10:00 in Room D201-202, The Elysium, The RAI Centre, Amsterdam on Monday 16 November.

The organisers have announced further details of confirmed speakers and panellists who will present their experiences and lead debates on the subject of End-of-Life Boats (ELBs) and how their growing numbers can be practically dealt with in the coming years.

Being staged at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre and timed to take place the day before the 2015 METSTRADE show opens, this dedicated one-day forum will attract delegates and participants from all sectors of the international leisure marine industry.

The event is fully sponsored by METSTRADE and supported by ICOMIA, which has provided the chairman for the day in the shape of its secretary general Udo Kleinitz.

Having been closely involved with the marine industry for well over 20 years, Mr Kleinitz brings a great deal of personal and professional interest to the subject matter.

As qualified master boatbuilder, he has held technical management positions with ICOMIA and British Marine (BM).

Carla Demaria, president of Monte Carlo Yachts, president of the Board of the Italian nautical industry association UCINA and a speaker with acknowledged in-depth experience of the boatbuilding industry, will deliver the keynote address.

She will set out her views on 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.

Mirna Cieniewicz, secretary general of the Brussels based European Boating Industry will present an overview of the Boat DIGEST project.

This collaboration between several EU based partners has been designed to create a working platform that facilitates the safe and environmentally responsible dismantling of boats which have reached the end of their working life.
