Reducing carbon emissions and pollution from fishing vessels

Last year the Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust provided a small grant to enable a company to promote their carbon reducing tool to the fishing industry. Ecomotus have developed technology, the EcoPro, which can improve the way an engine burns fuel, enabling vessels to significantly reduce their pollution and fuel consumption. As the EcoPro works at the point of combustion, it also helps to keep the engine oil cleaner and reduces black smoke from the stack and carbon deposits on the engine. The EcoPro can be monitored and remotely adjusted, and it comes with 3-year warranty. The technology is eligible for up to 80% funding under the Fisheries and Seafood Scheme, with help available to write the grant application. You can view the film here:
