Fishing for Energy (FfE) is a partnership of Covanta Energy Corporation, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Marine Debris Program, and Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. The purpose of the FfE partnership is to provide fishermen with a no-cost disposal option for old or derelict fishing gear and to convert it into clean, renewable energy, using state-of-the-art Energy-from-Waste technology. To date, nearly 270 tons of gear has been collected, metals are recovered for recycling, and the rest has generated approximately 330 MWh of electricity.
