To this regard, ASPO has implemented a specific project concerning discharge of waste water coming from yards the company’s yards or the yards in concession into the sea. This project includes the installation of a conditioning system that treats the whole regular water flow, in a continuous mode, thus complying with UNI-EN 858-1 standard. This work will safeguard the marine environment as much as possible.
As evidence of the attention addressed to the territory’s sustainable development, Special Authority has purchased two filtered hoppers. These installations have been particularly appreciated also as a sign of sensitivity towards environmental issues, aimed at minimising the impact of port operations.
The purpose of this is to contribute to the development of sustainable mobility through an increased use of “Sea Motorways” and "Short Sea Shipping" (cabotage) as they are the only ones able to improve cargo and passenger transport conditions as well as our every day life and the environment we live in.
Therefore, both "Sea Motorways" and "Short Sea Shipping" represent the most important environmental initiative and above all the one that is mainly shared by the new Europe.
