Resource or Project Abstract

BIM introduced a pilot programme to seven seafood companies looking at reducing environmental inputs. The largest and most costly waste streams of the sector are water and energy consumption through inefficient processes and utilisation. The programme involved environmental audits, installation of monitoring equipment and building on-site awareness of the opportunities for improvement. The programme outcomes were achieved through leak detection and efficiencies within process water and cleaning water.

Supplementary Information About This Resource

In this section some supplementary information about this resource is outlined. Lineage information helps us to understand why this project was carried out, what policy or research requirements did it fulfil, etc. Lineage is important in understanding the rationale behind the carrying out of a project or the collection of a specific dataset etc. Links to web sites, applications, papers, etc are outlined to provide you with additional information or supplementary reading about the project or dataset

Lineage information about this project or dataset
this project commenced as a result of a Seafood Industry Benchmark study and the governments Food Harvest 2020 policy. The programme was run as a pilot programme to understand the driver and and technical issues surrounding the seafood sectors reluctance to adequately address cost reductions and environmental management systems.
Supplementary Information
Water and energy management requires training on company staff members with mentoring to facilitate changes and monitoring. Water and Energy management can give direct cost savings to participant companies. Companies that better understand the energy and water management requirements are more likely to make investments that have a medium term payback.


The project was jointly funded by Bim and the EPA. The programme partner was Clean Technology Centre, Cork who undertook most of the field work.
