Wilmington, N.C.-based Clean Marine Solutions was awarded an $84,600 North Carolina Green Business Fund Grant to further fund development of an affordable solution for boatyard/marina powerwash wastewater effluent.

The grant is administered by the North Carolina Board of Science and Technology.

"The grant will provide money for custom systems at four North Carolina marine service facilities," president David Flagler said in a statement. "The goal of Clean Marine Solutions is to help boatyards and marinas comply with the Federal Clean Water Act."
