Given that one of the most important factors in incentivizing ship waste delivery is the waste fee system introduced by the port, designing the appropriate port waste fee system will play a crucial role in ensuring that ships calling at the ports in Thailand have incentive to deliver all the waste carried on board of the ship to a port reception facility instead of illegally discharging the waste into the sea.
This project aims to review existing ship waste management fee system in Thailand (Port Authority of Thailand (PAT) and Bangkok Port (BKP) as well as ports around the world along with reviewing the incentive programs used to incentivize ships to bring waste to port. In addition, this project also aims to recommend the appropriate ship waste management fee to the Port Authority of Thailand.
At present, the progress report was submitted. The report contains the review of ship waste management fee in Thailand and abroad as well as collected data related to the costs of ship waste management at the port.
