Dedicated facilities for oil/chemical spill simulation, research, education and training in Pusan (Korea)

-by Anne Bouyssou

In the aftermath of the Hebei spirit catastrophe in 2007, the Republic of Korea established dedicated facilities for oil/chemical spill simulation, research, education and training in Pusan. The Korea Marine Environment Management Corporation (KOEM) endowed its Marine Environment Research & Training Institute with an artificial shoreline, a pool, a seminar hall, classrooms, meeting rooms and accommodation, in order to fulfill two objectives. First, to enhance the national emergency response to oil/chemical spill incidents through training, education and awareness-raising programmes. Second, to foster international cooperation among researchers, scientists, experts from governments, institutions and organisations.
