NEIA hosts Atlantic Canada Offshore Clean Technology Pavilion

For Immediate Release
June 22, 2018

This week the Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) hosted an Atlantic Canada Offshore Clean Technology Pavilion at the Petroleum Show and Exhibition in St. John’s, NL.

“We see an enormous opportunity for the development and application of clean technologies in our offshore industries,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “The region is well positioned to leverage its expertise in ocean industries to develop solutions that will contribute to the long term economic and environmental sustainability of some of our key industries.”

Hanley said that NEIA is developing a strategy to foster clean innovation in offshore industries – solutions related to addressing efficiencies, wastes, emissions, and environmental risks. “We have worked with industry leaders to identify challenges and opportunities for clean technology development,” said Hanley. “Now we are exploring how we can communicate these opportunities to those that are inclined to pursue them – entrepreneurs, researchers, and innovative businesses.”

Hanley said that the pavilion, and the eight firms it highlighted, helped to introduce the global potential for clean technology within offshore industries. “The world is unquestionably moving towards a lower carbon economy – and the solutions we develop here at home to make our industries more efficient and competitive can be exported worldwide.” To stay informed on NEIA’s work in this space, sign up for email updates at www.offshorecleantech.com.

Participants in the pavilion included eight firms from the region that have developed clean technologies: EDGEWISE Environmental; Intelligent Materials and Monitoring; TotaliQ; Kraken Robotics; Marine Industrial Lighting Systems; Ocean Sonics: Oil Filtration Solutions; and Rutter.

NEIA is a not-for-profit association of businesses that promotes the development of clean technology and the growth of the green economy in Newfoundland and Labrador. NEIA has over 200 members. More information can be found at http://www.neia.org.
