Ship breaking or Ship demolition is the process of dismantling an obsolete vessels structure for scrapping or disposal. Conducted at a 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. Ship demolition is a challenging process, due to the structural complexity of the ships and the many environmental, safety, and health issues involved.
Ship-breaking activities have been regulated in dry docks; however, ship-breaking along the beaches have not be subjected to adequate control.
Breaking redundant old ships enables the scrap material like steel used in the ship to be recycled and reused. Through this method not only the waste material is used but also offers lower expenditure in comparison to the money that might be spent in importation or processing of iron ores.
Until the late 20th century, ship breaking took place in port cities of industrialized countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States. Today, most ship breaking yards are in Alang in India, Chittagong in Bangladesh, Aliaga in Turkey and Gadani near Karachi in Pakistan, due to lower labor costs and less stringent environmental regulations dealing with the disposal of lead paint and other toxic substances.
