China remains near top of the shipbreaking charts

Paris: China remains the second largest shipbreaker in terms of the number of ships scrapped, and third overall in tonnage terms, according to research on 2013 ship recycling figures from French group Robin des Bois.

In 2013, 1,119 ships were broken up, a decline of 16% over 2012 which was an "exceptional year," the environmental watchdog said.  [13/01/14]
