In March, The China Navigation Company ("CNCo") signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment ("SPREP") to address critical waste management issues in the Pacific islands. Under the provisions of the MOU, CNCo vessels will carry containers of recyclable waste from eligible Pacific island ports, on a pro bono basis, to be sustainably treated and recycled at suitable ports in the Asia Pacific region. Under the "Moana Taka Partnership", Pacific island nations that lack the space, facilities or finances to treat or dispose of waste appropriately will be eligible for this opportunity. The types of materials that are considered recyclable include plastics, aluminium cans, waste oil and ozone-depleting substances.
