The European Union plans to impose strict new rules on how companies scrap old tankers and cruise liners, run aground and dismantled on beaches in South Asia. However the practice in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, hazardous for humans and the environment, will still be hard to stop. European, Turkish and Chinese recyclers are set to benefit from the revamped standards. Depending on raw material prices, ship owners can make up to $500 per tonne of steel from an Indian yard, compared with $300 in China and just $150 in Europe.

An employee makes a bangle at a jewellery work shop in Colombo June 21,2013. Sri Lanka has imposed a 10 percent tax on gold imports with immediate effect, a top government official said on Friday. Sri Lanka's imports of the precious metal jumped 46.7 percent from a year ago to $110 million in the first four months of this year. It imported gold worth $50 million in April alone, the central bank's provisional data showed. REUTERS/Dinuka Liyanawatte (SRI LANKA - Tags: BUSINESS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Glassmaker Giovanni Zen holds a blowtorch while working near a furnace on the island of Murano near Venice January 27, 2009. Murano glass has been prized through the centuries for its refined beauty, but the credit crisis is threatening to shatter the fading Italian craft industry. Relentless competition from China and other producers and a strong euro that killed the U.S. market for its fine glass are the key culprits in cutting sales in half and the loss of about 75 percent of the sector's jobs in the last few years. But the financial crisis has dried up even the reduced sales at the glassmakers that line the canals of the Venetian island of Murano and raised stark questions about the future of the 700-year-old industry itself.

With just under one month to go before the opening ceremony for the most scrutinised Olympic Games in history, two key measures of pollution in China have fallen slightly in what the country's environmental regulator cast as a victory in the fight for more sustainable development, state media reported on Tuesday. Beijing has demanded factories in surrounding provinces stop work or cut production to clean the city's air, which has caused health concerns for a number of Games athletes.

An employee of Mostar-based Hercegovacka bank inspects charred German mark and Bosnian marka banknotes littered on the floor, after a dramatic pre-dawn raid on the bank staged by international officials and NATO-led Stabilisation Force (SFOR) April 18, 2001. Some 20 vehicles from the SFOR blocked streets of the town while soldiers used explosives and blowtorches to acess the bank's vault. The bank was suspected of fuelling a month-old Bosnian Croat nationalists' separatist campaign. This was the second raid on the bank in the past two weeks.
