The Ark Royal Is Scrapped In Turkey SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj THE guts of the once-mighty Ark Royal lie exposed in the Turkish sun as the scrapping process steps up a gear. These exclusive first shots show how workers have began cutting open the top half of the former flagship of the Royal Navy. About 80 staff from ship recycling firm Leyal began scrapping the 22,000-tonne warship just over a month ago near Izmir in West Turkey and are expected to take a further seven months to complete the job.

In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world's most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Bangladesh has no metal resources of its own city, so the shipbreaking yards in Chittagong, its largest second city, generate high profits for their owners. Workers though, enjoy none of the benefits of that profit; wages are barely enough to live on and there are no health and safety regulations to protect them. Injuries are a frequent occurrence and even death is not uncommon.

There aren't too many places left in the world where the practice of ship breaking—scrapping old ships for metal—can still exist. These days, environmental and labor regulations in the developed world have displaced the practice to India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, where cargo carriers are salvaged for their steel. The largest vessels wind up on the shores of the city of Chittagong in Bangladesh, where the industry has become a vital part of the country's urbanization. It employs roughly 200,000 workers and supplies the country with 80 percent of its steel. Ship breakers beach and dismantle vessels daily wearing flip-flops and T-shirts. It's no easy task, considering ships are constructed to withstand the elements for the 30 years they spend operating on international waters. We decided t...
In Aliaga, Turkey, large ships from around the world are dismantled, and the steel is recycled and sent to mills.
So you think Scrapping in the UK is easy. let me change your Mind.
Turkey is well-known for tourism but it has plenty of other industries and services including ship recycling. Ships are responsible for moving 90% of the world's trade and when they get too old they've got to go somewhere.

Ship breaking is one of the most hazardous jobs in the world because most ships are used to carry radioactive materials, toxic wastes, extremely poisonous chemicals and oil. Not only does it directly affect the health of the workers, it is an environmental time bomb - as workers strip the ships marooned on the sea shore, there is severe contamination of the sea bed, eventually seeping into the marine food chain. We visit the world's biggest ship breaking yard, Alang.
This is a Cine film taken by my father Cleeve Phillip Belcher at Meadway Spares in Birmingham in November 1969. It shows my Grandfather Cleeve Herbert Belcher taking his car to be smashed up and scrapped at the breakers yard. I understand it's a Wolseley car.

Once a thriving industry, years of economic decline have turned Pakistan's Gadani beach from a lifeline to the site of the nation's now-dying ship-breaking industry. Hard economic times have led most ships in the direction of neighbouring India and Bangladesh, where every piece of scrap metal and steel is salvaged. The Pakistanis who are still employed in the ship-breaking industry work for months at a time on a single vessel without protective gear to guard from the smoke and heavy materials they work around, with the nearest hospital over 50 kilometres away.
