D-Tech, an Icelandic Tech firm located at the Ocean Cluster House, will install and test a new plant sanitation technology that is new to the seafood processing industry in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The project is in co-operation with Fogo Island Co-Operative Society which will receive a government grant of $54,810 to help install and test the new technology.

The Icelandic system is expected to achieve cost savings while performing in a more environmentally-friendly manner than standard equipment. This specific technology uses an air dispersion system that extends throughout the plant. The system produces a sanitising fog that eliminates bacteria on contact.
