The world is so constituted that everything has a lifespan, and sadly realize with time everything is dying or in decline. Some things are very difficult to get rid of - for example, need to somehow keep the old ships. For shipowners it is a real headache. Last year, large companies have sent "retired" 365 ships, most of which went to India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and other countries in Southeast Asia.
Their disposal is an important part of the local economy, but also the strongest environmental pollutants. Along the coast of the entire landfill formed - so-called "graveyard of ships."
