ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the concern of the chemicals industry on emissions caused by global shipping. The increasing desire for greener transport has caused the International Maritime Organization to introduce additional rules such as the provision of tank cleaning facilities. The most important piece of new legislation faced by the global chemical shipping industry concerns the revisions to Annexe II of the Maritime Pollution Convention.
