Investigation of Marine Pollution Caused by Ship Operations with DEMATEL Method

Ships have an important role in the factors causing marine pollution. Marine pollution by ships damages sea life, which effects human health indirectly. In addition, it restricts usage of sea for different purposes. Increasing comprehensive and compelling liabilities related with environmental components and subjects day by day are expected results for environmental science and engineering applications according to 60% of our responsibilities of European Union Integration development. In today's world, where global warming is an issue of high priority and makes us feel its impacts in our lives, leaving a livable world to the next generations is now a primary goal for all. Determination of marine pollution caused by ship operations issue is a multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem, and requires MCDM methods to solve it. Therefore, the role of ship factors in maritime pollution and the possible reasons of this argument can be quantitatively evaluated based on expert knowledge and MCDM methodology. To investigate what makes to reduce the first "caused by ship operations" in marine pollution, the decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) method approach was applied in this study.
