We will dive into subjects as Sustainability and Greening on and around dry bulk terminals; the role of the recently adopted IMO resolution on Greening and its impact.  Clarkson’s Research will provide an update on dry bulk shipping markets focussing on impact of Green Transition, energy mix changes, environmental regulations and trends in vessel technology, followed by an in-depth vision of “Impact of Green Transition and Fuelling Transition on dry bulk shipping, ports and terminals and update on progress of and outlook for green facilities and investments at dry bulk ports and terminals”.

Next to these items we will focus on the actual geopolitical situation and the effect to our industry, also related to the security of supply in the food and feed segment. Kevin Cribbin will introduce our IBTA contribution on “Enclosed Spaces Fatalities” to IMO’s CCC and we will have several of our Members giving their vision on Safety and how this is embedded in their respective Operations. Of course we will have our in- depth panel and audience discussions. And last but not least, we present Operational and Technical introductions and developments that are of value showing to you!
