The Mayor of Las Palmas highlights the benefits of the city-port project
For Augusto Hidalgo, constructive dialogue between stakeholders, especially the City and Port, have served to redefine and revitalise the former port district of Santa Catalina. The promenades and recreational areas around the aquarium which opened last December are a prime example. They will be completed by the creation of a new marine park, on which work has already begun. The aim is also to consolidate local cruise activity, attracting even more than the 640,000 passengers who visited in 2017, but also enhancing the city’s profile and appeal by improving facilities for tourists and developments to encourage them to visit different districts.

Between plastics and ship waste, the challenges around waste in ports are reaching critical point
Since the start of the year, China’s restrictive policy on plastic waste imports has been causing a build-up at European ports, where storage areas are becoming gradually saturated. Some countries are looking at landfill as a temporary solution. Elsewhere, such as at the Port of Amsterdam, new possibilities are being found, including turning waste into fuel. At the same time, Europe’s ports are calling for new legislation on the collection of ship waste to include higher taxation.
