Ship recycling involves processing used materials into new products to prevent wastage of potentially useful materials, reduce / eliminate the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from land filling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" waste hierarchy.
Most ships have a lifespan of a few decades before there is so much wear that refitting and repair becomes uneconomical. Ship breaking allows materials from the ship, especially steel, to be reused. Equipment on board the vessel can also be reused.
Any industry basically aims at value addition. Generally the value addition is done through a 'building' process. However, ship recycling is a typical activity, which adds value through a 'recycling' process. When a ship goes uneconomic / unsafe as per standards of safety to operate, it is sent for recycling to ship recycling yards. At the same those ships that happen to meet with accidents and for whom the subsequent repairs prove to be uneconomic, are also send for recycling
