Fluvial Innovations is one of three winners sharing £200,000 Defra funding to develop technology to tackle climate change and flooding, Environment Minister Lord de Mauley today announced.
The successful businesses beat hopefuls looking to address flooding and the effects of climate change in local communities through developing innovative technology
Congratulating the winners, Environment Minister Lord de Mauley said:
“This year we saw weeks of heavy rain and flooding across the country and we witnessed the devastation extreme weather can cause, especially to the rural economy. The effects of climate change and flooding is only likely to increase.
“These businesses have created exciting ways to combat climate change and the effects of flooding in our communities. The competition has encouraged people to think about tackling the problems the environment throws at us…”
Simon Phelps, MD of Fluvial Innovations says:
