Dutch company Bin2Barrel is constructing a new facility that will convert previously unrecyclable plastic into fuel for diesel-powered cargo ships. The plant will be the first of four ‘plastic to fuel’ facilities built near the port and is estimated to begin operations by the end of the year. We find out what benefits it could bring to the port and ships.

We also investigate the choppy waters ahead for Indian shipping firms after the government relaxed cabotage rules, find out what can be done to prevent fires on board container vessels, and speak to security solutions company Synopsys about an ethical hacking project that could improve shipping cybersecurity.

Finally, we consider whether European ship recycling facilities will provide enough capacity following China’s decision to ban the import of end-of-life ships for recycling, and take a closer look at the implications of Sri Lanka’s decision to transfer ownership of the Port of Hambantota to China.
