Triple-E: Total vessel recycling
Maersk Line will implement the most comprehensive cradle-to-cradle passport ever seen for the new giant Triple-E ships.
The cradle to cradle passport will identify each and every nut and bolt of the giant 60.000 ton ships, making vastly improved recycling possible for most materials as well as safe disposal for the rest.
The materials of the ships will all be marked and numbered -- separating high and low grade steel, copper wiring, hazardous materials and waste.
Based on the sorting it will be possible to reuse nearly all materials for new ships making dangerous and polluting scrapping a thing of the past.
