Definition

A site, where one or several used materials have been recycled to make something new in a maritime setting. [1]


Description

For example, old ship's hulls recycled as foundation for a breakwater, pier or jetty.

Recycling is separated from reuse, where for example, an old ship hull is reused, when its primary new function remains as a floating vessel.[2]
