With a commitment of $1 million a year for five years, the Port of San Diego has developed a Blue Economy Incubator to support early stage and market ready ventures. Some of this money is already going to our first round of demonstration pilot projects, which include copper remediation, vessel washing, and smart marina optimization technologies.
