Miami (USA): a masterplan to tackle rising sea levels

The City of Miami has unveiled a masterplan to protect against rising sea levels over the next 40 years. The 3.8 billion dollar plan includes a wide range of short and long term measures. These include traditional solutions, such as the construction of a huge levee that is already proving controversial. However, other more innovative measures are also being considered to co-exist with the water, such as strengthening the existing marshes and reefs to absorb waves, creating floating districts, turning streets into canals, and so on.

The port of Algeciras (Spain) restores and showcases its local heritage

The port authorities have submitted a plan to conserve and showcase the local heritage to the Board of Directors. An inventory of sites with heritage, historic, or artistic value has been created. It is an update of a project dating back to 2001, that now lists some 391 sites of interest. The project also includes preliminary plans for a Port Center, History Museum and Interpretation Centre. It will be created in a multipurpose building as part of the “Lago Maritimo” project in the City Port interface zone.

The circular economy all along the shipping industry supply chain

A new report by the “Sustainable Shipping Initiative” based in London (UK) claims that ships that reach the end of their lives can be almost completely recycled, by adopting recycling-friendly measures right from the design phase. Dockside operations and redevelopment of the City-Port interface are also positive for the circular economy, which is why the port of Antwerp (Belgium) is set to rehabilitate 88 hectares of brownfield land as a hub for recycling and activities using recovered products. The site will house production of biofuels, steel, polyols and even lithium batteries! Other candidates have until 21 October 2021 to join the initiative.
