SDG 12

Focus on climate and environment

At Port of Grenaa , we focus on the environment and climate, and work with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12 "Responsible consumption and production". That's why we have developed a specially designed container system that supports ships in handling and sorting their waste in the most environmentally friendly way possible. The waste container is typically requested via the ship's broker.

Waste management

By establishing effective reception facilities, the port contributes to a positive environmental impact through the sound management of ships' operational and cargo waste.

The aim is to make it convenient for ships calling at the port to deliver their waste instead of discharging/dumping it into the sea. The Port of Grenaa's waste reception system is described in the waste management plan applicable to the commercial and industrial port.

Rules on reporting waste

All ships calling at Danish ports are obliged to deliver waste to the port. However, ships are exempted if the waste is small and can be stored on board in an environmentally sound manner, and if the waste, together with waste generated later, can be delivered to a later port.

Waste is reported via SafeSeaNet. SafeSeaNet is an EU-based electronic network for the exchange of maritime-related information between Member States.

Environmentally friendly processing of slurry

Nordic Oily Waste operates a specially designed treatment plant at Port of Grenaa to receive large quantities of ship-generated waste water and sludge. Nordic Oily Waste receives slop at the port or charters a tanker to pick up the slop at sea.
Nordic Oily Waste also offers cleaning of the ship's tanks. The company specialises in filtering sludge oil in a biological process, after which the sludge oil can be recycled as supporting fuel. The process takes place in environmentally approved tank facilities at the port.
