Drydocks World chief executive Rado Antolovic has good reason to make the shipyard he runs as green as possible.

The massive repair yard in the heart of Dubai is surrounded by high-value residential and commercial real estate, locations that in today's world no longer tolerate having a polluting industrial facility in close proximity.

Antolovic believes there are many ways that shipyards can take advantage of new green technologies to reduce their emissions and protect the surrounding marine and land environments.
