Abstract

Around 2,000 sizeable ships are normally at sea at any time in the Baltic, including large oil tankers, ships carrying dangerous and potentially polluting cargoes, and many large passenger ferries. The Baltic Sea has some of the busiest shipping routes in the world. Marine chemical transportation is constantly growing, in regard with the number of chemicals and the total volume of goods transported. Great deal of these chemicals is dangerous to the environment.
