Interspill 2015 is organised by a Steering Committee, via Interspill Ltd., comprising hosts, UKSPILL, with
SYCOPOL, NOSCA and EuroSpill from the European spill industry, together with IPIECA representing the global oil industry, and EMSA representing the European Community.
Interspill is also supported by IMO, IOPC, CEDRE and ITOPF as in 2009, and in 2012 we also had support from the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency, with Oil Spill Response Ltd who have committed to long term sponsorship of the event.
The scope of this group illustrates the support Interspill has gained from industry and governmental and inter governmental sources, and its ambition to become a key leading international
event for those concerned with
oil and HNS spills.
- This feasibility study could pave the way to zero carbon ocean patrols
to clean up plastic waste and convert around 8 million tons of it into
fuel. The same vessel as a full size ship could incorporate an oil
spill recovery module. If that was of interest to any organization. MBS
are looking to apply for Horizon
2020 funding before June of 2015. If you would like to learn more
about this important concept, please contact
anyone of us as soon as you can.
FOR PAPERS -
27th February 2014
The Interspill Organising Committee announces the Preliminary Programme together with the Call for Papers, for Interspill 2015 and invites Authors to submit Abstracts.
PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME - Topics & Themes
Interspill 2015 is focussed on the changing landscape of Spill Preparedness and Response as E&P, and shipping activities continue to move into more challenging environments, and public sensitivities to perceived spill risks has increased. These challenges have generate a range of Conference streams, on which Authors are requested to submit related papers.
The Organising Committee for Interspill 2015 announces the Call for Papers for the Conference, Poster exhibition, Scientific Workshops, and Spill Industry Seminars.
Authors are requested to submit a short Abstract, up to 250 words, to the Committee by email, addressed to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors are requested to confirm whether their Paper is for the Conference, for the Poster exhibition, for the Science Workshops or the Spill Industry Seminars and to indicate which stream(s) they wish their paper to be considered under.
full size SeaVax will be capable of extracting plastic or oil
from the ocean. Routine plastic patrols may be interrupted, where a
fleet of these ships could be diverted to deal with oil spills. So far
there has been only one enquiry on that score for the Gulf
of Guinea. We hope to interest some of the energy
giants as potential partners to the SeaVax project. The above boat will
be on display in London between the 9-10th of November 2015 at the Old
Billingsgate exhibition halls.
