Engineering for the aquaculture industry – biological, environmental friendly, sustainable

Integrated aquaculture is rapidly becoming a core solution by addressing many of the challenges the world is being confronted with

Our Approach – read more

 

Technology

In RAS-systems, different tanks, adapted to the respective aqua species, are connected to a circulating, mechanical-biologial waterprocessing facility, in a modular set-up. Such a modular water processing facility lies at the core of every RAS-facility and requires a specifically designed and highly concerted layout, to accommodate the respective species.

This technology approach ensures that each module operates with its own watercirculation, thus effectively preventing cross-contamination and optimizing operating efficiency.

Overview of our technology: effective – flexible- safe – economic
According to our motto «KISS» (keep it simple and safe)

In our current YouTube video the general principle of our technology is indicated as well as the main components of a basic module and its arrangement.

This basic module can be used as a fully functional “stand-alone” production unit. Also the unit can be extended in a modular way to an industrial fish farming facility. The conceptual design of our modules allows to be integrated into existing building or halls in an easy way.

Areas of deployment:

Aquaculture offers a lucrative alternative in the production of animal protein, as it is by far the most efficient means of resources transformation. For comparison, one ton of animal feed produces 150 kg of beef or one nearly one ton of fish, not to speak of the huge environmental impact of both beef and pork (enormous air and water pollution).
