The global aquaculture industry is growing, and growing fast. Sustaining the livelihoods of millions, while blazing a trail in the cultivation of sustainable practices.
Nonetheless pressure is mounting on fish-farm operators to manage rising costs and adhere to tighter regulations, particularly in relation to mortalities. The risks of disease and environmental degradation are ever-present.
It’s more important than ever that we develop innovations that drive a more viable, ethical and sustainable use of the world’s aquatic resources.
The volume of unwanted mortalities is increasingly under scrutiny from all quarters. Consumers want to buy from businesses which can demonstrate ethical and environmentally responsible practices.
On a commercial level, we understand your responsibility to process mortalities in a safe and compliant manner, without compromising productivity and operational efficiency.
We have a suite of solutions that help you get a handle on both challenges: tap into the vast potential for aquaculture waste to be transformed into high-value, marketable by-products. Waste is responsibly managed, and an additional revenue stream created.
Our in-house laboratory plays a vital role in tailoring solutions for each individual business. By carrying out analysis on waste streams, we ensure that the correct process is designed and implemented.
Traditional methods of this class of waste disposal include energy intensive incineration, or the mass transportation of waste to an authorised landfill. Neither is ideal from a sustainable or emissions perspective.
PLUTUS is a treatment technology which is designed to recover valuable, nutritious solids from the ‘waste’ stream, transforming them into products of high market value. A new revenue stream for businesses. A circular economy solution.
Capitalising on the high nutritional value of Category 3 waste, these materials can be valorised via our PLUTUS system, into food-grade protein and high-grade omega oils for sale to pharmaceutical, veterinary, or medical professions for example.
If we are to play our role in addressing global food scarcity, this industry must take stewardship of our blue economy, carefully monitoring water quality and limiting secondary pollution, whilst also adhering to strict discharge legislation.
Our innovative Proteus Meter is a water quality monitoring device which places this information at your fingertips. With 13 sensors, the technology provides live data for over 30 parameters, while minimising the need for manual handling.
Epitomising our circular economy ethos, our PLUTUS technology is designed to transform Category 2 fish waste into biodiesel, which is manufactured to the regulatory standard of European biodiesel specification, EN14214.
This can then be used to fuel and power fishing vessels and other machinery within the industry.
