ITOPF hosts symposium on 'A new era of spill response risks and challenges'
Written by 11 September 2023
ITOPF spent time in Piraeus to meet with some of its key stakeholders in the region and deliver a symposium – ‘A new era of spill response risks and challenges’.
The symposium focused on the lessons the organisation has learned from attending spills of plastic pellets (nurdles), it's experience in dealing with spills of Low Sulfur Fuel Oils (LSFOs) and considerations to be made in measuring greenhouse gas emissions during a marine pollution event.
While in the area, ITOPF delivered a pollution response table-top exercise to NorthStandard, and discussed its recent attendance to marine pollution events and the role it plays while on site to several more P&I Clubs including, Britannia P&I Club, The Swedish Club, Gard AS, West P&I, Skuld, and The American P&I Club.
