Information seminar about Blue Card system -an environmental program to protect the sea against pollution- has been held in Marinturk İstanbul City Port Marina with the participation of Mr. Cem Tekin Yavuz, Environmental Engineer from Ministry of Environment and Urbanization.
Under the scheme waste water may not be discharged to the sea, even if over three miles from shore, but must be collected in Grey water tanks, and toilet waste in Black water tanks. Waste tanks must be discharged at shore-based pump out stations.
With the participation of technical service provider companies in Marinturk, Seajet, paint and antifouling material manufacturer has made a demonstration of their products in İstanbul Marinturk boatyard area.
Unlike antifoulings, which use toxic agents in the paint to keep fouling off the hull, Seajet products use silicone to provide an ultra slippy surface, that fouling finds it difficult to adhere to.
