Ship Recycling is the process of dismantling a vessel’s structure for scrapping or disposal whether conducted at a beach, pier, dry dock or dismantling slip. It includes a wide range of activities, from removing all gear and equipment to cutting down and recycling the ship’s infrastructure.

Old ships that are no longer capable of plying or those that have such high maintenance costs that it is more economical to scrap them are usually sold to ship-recyclers.  And the only safe and economic way of getting rid of such vessels is a systematic recycling. Thus the need of reducing unnecessary ship-traffic in a safe and economic way gave birth to the massive industry called ship-recycling.
