Making Seafood Processing Greener with Rainwater Harvesting

BIM, Irelands Seafood Development Agency, are hosting a Rainwater Harvesting Webinar for Irish Seafood Processing businesses to examine the benefits of adopting rainwater harvesting systems on site and provide opportunities for improving water management and reducing water costs.  The free webinar will take place on Thursday 25th March at 13.00 and all seafood processors are welcome to register their attendance.

The event is being hosted by BIM, in conjunction with their Water Stewardship Programme partners, Central Solutions and is just one of a series of sustainable resource management webinars which BIM’s Green Seafood Business Programme will be hosting over the coming year.  Other areas addressed under the Programme are the efficient management of energy, waste, and emissions.

Speaking in advance of the event, Martina O’Brien, Green Programme Co-ordinator, BIM said,

Water is a shared natural resource and is essential to everything we do in the seafood sector.  However, its supply is limited, and this will pose a major challenge in the coming decade.  We must act now to ensure we understand the potential risks to seafood businesses and identify sustainable solutions to this significant issue.  This Rainwater Harvesting webinar is an opportunity to gain awareness around sustainable water management, develop a better understanding of water use on your site, and identify potential cost savings opportunities in relation to water use.

The live streamed event will include speakers from BIM, Central Solutions, Ireland’s water management specialists, members of the seafood processing sector, and BIM.  This programme is funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
