Oceanology International 2014: Subsea Mining in Spotlight

Subsea mining is in the news as well as on the agendas of an increasing number of companies around the globe.

On Friday 7 February the Deep Sea Mining Bill, which seeks to bring forward greater regulations to the emerging industry, with an emphasis placed on protecting the marine environment, was given an unopposed second reading in the UK’s House of Lords. It is therefore no wonder that this is a topic that is firmly on the conference agenda at Oceanology International 2014 (OI 2014), the world’s largest exhibition for marine science and technology taking place Tuesday 11 – Thursday 13 March 2014 at London’s ExCeL.

“With high commodity prices driving a resurgence of interest in ocean mining, there are new and exciting applications being created for ocean technologies,” explains Event Director, James Coleman of Reed Exhibitions. He also mentioned, how this is a global event, attracting companies and individuals from 70 different countries and how it’s of a great importance the government has recognized the possibilities of subsea mining.

Oceanology International is the forum where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.

Also included in the main topical panel of discussion, besides subsea mining, are ocean science and technology and aquaculture.
