BIM Water Stewardship Programme

Save Water, Reduce Costs

BIM, working in collaboration with Central Solutions Ltd., is running a National Water Stewardship Programme developed specifically for the Irish Seafood Industry.

The programme aims to provide seafood processing sites with a structured approach to managing water on site, as well as support at each step as they progress on their journey to better water stewardship. 

Following a successful pilot of this programme, seafood processors like Irish Fish Canners, Kish Fish, Norfish and Goatsbridge have achieved significant efficiencies and cost savings.
