The significant contribution of HEC to the implementation of the strict environmental requirements and regulations of the MARPOL Convention (the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships), which obliges every port to provide adequate port reception facilities for ship-generated waste, is distinguished by its competition and appraised from its clients and partners.
As the first company in the globe to be fully certified by Lloyds Register for the Arrangement and Management of Port Waste Reception Facilities (ISO 16304:2018), our vision is to create Green Ports around the world. We assist ports and marinas to establish an integrated green operational model, whilst meeting their legal requirements.
From waste collection to the efficient treatment and lawful disposal, HEC provides a holistic approach with simple and clear procedures for ports, which not only prevents vessels from discharging their waste illegally at sea, but also encourages and promotes the environmentally sound management of ships’ waste, thus contributing to the greening of ports’ operational model.
For decades, the majority of waste generated on board ships ended up in the oceans and at seas. Nowadays, shipping accounts for about 20% of the global discharges into the sea.
We at HEC undertake the collection, transportation, treatment and lawful disposal of all types of ship-generated liquid waste, from oily waste such as bilge water, used engine oils, slops and tank washings to noxious liquid waste and sewage.
We can collect, transport and subsequently treat all types of oily waste, included in Annex I, Annex II and Annex IV of the MARPOL Convention. By taking care of your waste, we prevent hazardous substances generated from ship operations from entering the marine environment, thus assisting shipping companies to establish and maintain a green character in their daily operations. Last but not least, we carry all the necessary equipment to manage any pollution incident that might occur. For this purpose, we can offer oil spill response services and access to our prevention & spill combating stations that include oil containment booms, skimming devices, specially constructed auxiliary boats etc.
Whether it is power generation, cement production or the chemical sector, industrial processes are associated with the generation of substantial amounts of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Emphasizing on the efficient use of resources and the promotion of a circular economy model where resource efficiency and the re-use of waste materials are prioritised, we at HEC help industrial waste generators manage their waste efficiently and lawfully.
Utilizing our long-standing experience and expertise, we can manage effectively waste streams generated by industrial units, guaranteeing maximum recovery levels and lawful disposal. Our integrated waste management services prevent industrial units from the 'leakage' of waste outside their cycle of production and consumption whilst adhering to the highest regulatory and environmental standards.
Oil exploration and production involves the generation of drilling waste, which might constitute a major source of pollution. Almost every process in the research for, and in the production of, petroleum such as drilling, work-over and gas plant operations, generates several types of waste whose unlawful disposal might lead to detrimental effects on the marine environment from oil cuttings and excess drilling fluids.
We at HEC can manage lawfully the major waste streams originating from both on-shore and off-shore drilling platforms, such as drilling muds, cuttings, excess liquid and other drilling waste, in the context of implementing a zero-waste discard policy.
The activities of the oil industry have several impacts on the environment due to the large amounts of oily waste that are generated. We at HEC can help oil refineries and terminals improve their environmental footprint, by providing comprehensive hazardous waste management services for both their liquid and solid waste streams.
Our contribution, is further strengthened by our company’s commitment to the principles of circular economy and the supply of high-quality recovered carbon oil which refineries can use as an input to their process.
