This article deals with the obligation to remedy environmental damage caused by shipping. The concept of “remediation” extends further than to a mere removal of oil and other pollutants. Remediation embodies an effort to repair or replenish the environment to its previous state, or if this is not feasible, to provide for so-called alternative restoration.
