While in the past, the environmental safeguard was not an issue, nowadays ports worldwide consider the prevention of pollution a first objective, especially with import/export of dry bulk cargo (coal, grain, iron ore, fertilizer, etc…). In this case, the risk of spillage and dust production is very critical. Problems can occur during the loading or discharge operation, but also if the material need to be stored in the port zone. To achieve a reduction of emissions the first step could be the use eco-friendly bulk handling equipment. We suggest to download and read this very interesting PEMA – Port Equipment Manufacturers Association paper focus on Dry Bulk Cargoes and the Impact on Air Pollution in Ports. Bedeschi S.p.a. supports PEMA’s commitment to provide a platform to promote best practices worldwide and thanks to its research and development in green technology, is able to design and produce machines to reach the highest environmental standards.
The paper is available for download from the PEMA website.
