BMT has offered to assist the Bangladeshi government with the provision of mercury management services in respect to the decision to ban the Palau-flagged J Nat from entering Bangladesh waters due to the toxic ship J Nat carrying toxic waste with mercury.

The presence of mercury in sludge, together with the associated mercury contaminated steel is a known by-product of oil and gas operations. It has the potential to present a safety risk to personnel and the environment. However, with the application of safe work standards, this can be safely managed.

BMT was established in 1991 to protect human health and the environment from the adverse effects of mercury and NORM waste. BMT continually focuses on finding the safest, most sustainable and effective waste of treating, stabilising and responsible disposal of mercury and NORM contaminated waste. We offer a wide range of services,

BMT has a global presence and can provide support for the development and implementation of safe work standards to ensure the protection of life and the environment for all processes associated with removal, waste management and equipment management for the Palau-flagged J Nat.
