This paper deals with eco issues in bulk materials handling in ports. Solid, free-flowing materials are said to be in bulk. Bulk materials han-dling is very difficult, because it incorporates all the features of liquids, gasses and mass solids. Energy efficiency, dust emissions in nearby en-vironment, dust explosions, jamming, noise, handling of hazardous ma-terials and protection of materials from contamination are issues that will be considered in this paper. Here are also presented possible solu-tions for some of these issues.
