Environmental Sustainability

Shell-Ex processes marine by-products that may otherwise be ocean dumped or landfilled. Every ton of fishery by-product that Shell-Ex diverts from the waste stream means we prevent almost an equivalent amount of green house gases from being released into the atmosphere or ocean environment.
In our first week of production, we diverted over 30 metric ton of greenhouse gas from shrimp shell by-product. Day by day, the people who work at Shell-Ex are making the North Atlantic coastline a greener, cleaner place.

Our work is being recognized by leaders in the environmental sustainability field, such as the Multi-Material Stewardship Board in Newfoundland, who recognized the contributions Shell-Ex is making in diverting organic resources from the waste stream.
