Emergency Response to Coastal Oil, Chemical and Inert Pollution from Shipping (EROCIPS)
Date du début: 31 oct. 2004, Date de fin: 9 mars 2008 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The EROCIPS project aims to provide an opportune answer to accidents of oil, chemical and inert pollution of coastal areas. Its aim is to formulate a transferable methodology to supply relevant information to the stakeholders and the decision-makers committed to fighting coastal pollution after an accident. To achieve this objective, it is organising eight workshops whose actions can be summed up as follows:1) Imagine worst-case pollution scenarios and analyse the necessary actions, the natural and built-up environment and the meteorological processes; 2) Develop various strategies for protection and cleaning; 3) Take stock of the human and material resources available in the event of an intervention; 4) Organise staff training for local authorities, government representatives, industry managers and volunteers; 5) Model the likely grounding zones and the trajectories of the pollution; 6) Provide information to the various participants; 7) Environmental monitoring to restore the initial coastal situation after pollution; 8) Dissemination of the project results. Achievements: - Creation of a system to ensure coordinated action in the event of oil slicks - Study of the incidents of marine pollution which have affected the Atlantic coasts and analysis of the answers provided by the local governments - Creation of a geographic information system (GIS) making it possible to organise and present geographically referenced alphanumeric data, and to produce maps - A coastal inventory from a study of navigable itineraries, marine traffic, local ports, the type of freight transport company - Availability of risk analyses and models for anticipating pollution - Development of a method for controlling the coastline - Drafting of a waste management manual giving details of the legislation in force - Creation of an interactive map displaying the available resources, lists of people to contact in the event of an emergency and scientific and technical assessments - Creation of a website: - Training and awareness courses aimed at volunteers, regional or local administrations and business managers - Setting up an environmental surveillance system for the Atlantic coasts (protocols, database, advice) - Collaboration with similar European projects, coordinated by bodies such as the European Marine Safety Agency (EMSA)
