Open from 1 to 5 June, the exhibition was organized by Valenciaport and 9 other companies in the sector to mark World Environment Day
Alongside Valenciaport and eight other companies in the sector Boluda Corporación Marítima participated in an exhibition on environmental protection measures held to mark World Environment Day from 1 to 5 June at the Clock Tower Building. This initiative, visited by about 1,100, mostly school groups, was an opportunity for Valenciaport and the other participating companies to demonstrate their commitment to the environment by communicating their measures aimed at reducing the impact of port activity.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy Boluda Corporación Marítima participates in this initiative imparting first-hand knowledge of the latest maritime environmental protection measures.
Two exhibition panels highlighted the company’s environmental responsibility in its commitment to sustainability in the ports and oceans in which its ships operate.
The towing division Boluda Towage and Salvage has opted for intelligent tugs (smartships) which reduce emissions for lower energy consumption and an 80% noise reduction for crews and port. In fact, Boluda Towage and Salvage invests heavily each year in new technologies and the latest technical advances in anti-pollution. Its new tugs can adjust to each port and operation, implying a significant reduction in consumption and gas emissions into the atmosphere, pioneering the use of this advanced technology.
In addition, Boluda Tankers is in the process of applying the GAINN4MOS guidelines to capacitate one of its oil tankers to supply and run on liquefied natural gas (LNG), reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by 80% and solid particles in sulfur oxide suspension by 100%.
Boluda Lines containerships reduce carbon dioxide emissions, one of the main greenhouse effect gases, to 0.0555 kg CO /ton per mile, and emissions of nitrogen oxides and solid sulfur oxide particles to 1.66 grams.
Over the weekend the exhibition hosted a varied program of educational workshops for children, as well as a guided tour of Valencia port.
