Description

When a rogue oil trader tried to save money on toxic waste treatment costs, he decided that dumping it in Ivory Coast would be more economic. He was wrong. What would have cost about half a million eventually costs his company more than 300 million. What went wrong? How was this toxic waste accumulated? Who was involved? What kind of toxicity caused thousands of Ivorians to get sick and some of them die? Chris Monas is a marine cargo expeditor and oil blender who makes a lot of money for his Principals, an oil trading firm in Rotterdam. He is also paid handsomely. But when he is confronted with victims of the toxic cocktails he mixes, he has no other choice than to turn sides. He barely escapes an attempt to stop him, but he manages to survive. Injured, half dead, Chris comes up with a devious and dangerous scheme to prevent a next environmental and human disaster, but at what price? Toxic Tanker is a fast paced ecological thriller. It is a page-turner disclosing illegal ship to ship cargo transfers in open water and the on-board blending of toxic Gasoline components on board the vessel 'Probo Koala'. The Press on Toxic Tanker: 'This is an extremely important story that has to be told. This fiction thriller comes very close to the true story. The plot will keep you reading. (Synnove Bakke. Journalist. NRK Norwegian Television, maker of the award-winning documentary on oil blending Dirty Cargo) 'Also non oil industry insiders will enjoy this exciting story and ingenious plot.' (Jeroen Trommelen, Investigative Journalist, Volkskrant Amsterdam) 'The highly readable book is not only written in a fast paced style, but also written from alternating angles and international locations. (Thrillerboek.nl) 'This books gives you an insider's look into the tough world of International Oil Trade, poisonous cocktails, industrial processing on board of tankers, corruption and profit. Realistic fiction, clearly written by someone on the inside. The book explains how easy it seems to make toxic waste disappear. Tragically it ultimately led on to the 2006 Ivory Coast environmental disaster. The author has guts.' (Marietta Harjono, Greenpeace International)."
