Shipbuilding and shipping industries are comprehensive sectors with various types of manufacturing and operation phases. Ship manufacturing is a complicated body of processes including mainly painting, blasting, cutting and welding. Painting is the most important emission producer stage amongst all. Ship operation phase is the longest stage of a ship's life cycle and due to the fuel burning in engines; different types of gaseous emissions are produced. In this study, an on-going bulk carrier, which was built in Turkey, was selected. The greatest emission sources of shipbuilding and operation processes, which are painting and flue gas, are investigated. The impacts of these emissions to the human health and environment are examined.
