Coal Transshipment: Environmental Issues in the Far East
4 September 2019
15:00—16:30

The transshipment of coal and bulk cargo in the Far East is of great importance to the economies of the Far East, as well as to Russia and Asian countries, but environmental issues need to be addressed. The open-air transshipment of dusty cargoes in seaports ill-equipped to handle them leads to increased air pollution, impacting the environment of the surrounding area. Currently, it is impossible to completely abandon the practice of open-air coal transshipments, but in the interests of residents living close to ports, new advanced technologies for the transshipment of goods based on the most stringent environmental standards are required. How can regulatory organizations ensure effective control of the coal transshipment process in the Russian Far East? How can we encourage stevedores to use modern, environmentally friendly technologies in order to protect the health of the region’s inhabitants? What needs to be done to set up effective environmental monitoring systems? What Russian and international experience in minimizing dust generation during coal transshipment in ports can we draw from?
