Environment

We have a full focus on reducing our environmental footprint all our processes and contribute positively to an environmental improvement in the aquaculture industry.
All our service stations have a high standard of waste handling and preventing infections, with results surpassing the demands of the authorities.

Use of «dirty» and «clean» zones in the washing process for nets as well as disinfecting nets after washing and all transport vehicles, help safeguard the environment.
 
Waste is processed by a treatment plant that separates copper and other metals for recycling, while organic waste is shipped off for incineration. Finally, all water is filtered with ozone equipment for a pathogen-free release.
Egersund Net is one of Nofir's suppliers. The company's service departments along the Norwegian coast sends discarded nets and other waste for recycling.

- Before shipment, the equipment is beeing washed and disinfected. In 2020, more than 1,700 tonnes of farmed equipment sent from our service stations. Environmental savings of this corresponds to the reduction of more than 5,700 tons of CO2 equivalents.

Floor carpets in Egersund Group showroom is made from recycled netting.

"We work thoroughly and systematically amongst our employees, to develop and maintain consciousness and awareness about the environment."
