Cost efficient solutions for reducing the waste discharged in land-based marine recirculating aquaculture systems (WASTE-TREAT) (39190)

Project Details


Growth in aquaculture production demands a high degree of environmental engineering to minimize nutrient discharge thereby reducing the environmental impact. This industrial collaboration project aims at finding the cost-efficient treatment methods for reducing the waste discharged from large-scale land-based marine recirculating aquaculture systems. End-of-pipe solutions for minimizing the N, P, and organic matter waste discharge from seawater RAS are to be developed, demonstrated and evaluated.
