The recycling process starts immediately upon entering a contract with LSR for recycling services.
Sampling of environmentally sensitive material can be carried out prior to the arrival or upon the arrival of the vessels at Alang. This sampling process helps catalogue and understand the material onboard, such as asbestos and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). It also determines the recycling process and the work flow chart necessary to remediate the material and recycle the vessel.
Once in port, specialized staff are assigned specific tasks on-board the vessel in order to accomplish the recycling process safely.
