Recirculation technology for future aquaculture (REFA) (38843)

Project Details


An Innovation Consortia with many industrial partners. In the project, basic and applied research was performed by several partners to support the development of new and energy-efficient technologies for recirculation systems.

Some of the research issues were:
- to develop new filter technologies and energy-efficient aeration systems
- to develop process- and CFD models to improve our understanding and insight into dynamic variation in water quality parameters
- to determine the importance of particulate matter for biofilter operation (this was the DTU Aqua research package)
- to develop tools and instruments for advanced regulation and control of recirculating aquaculture systems
- to develop technologies for waste management

Twelve larger Danish companies were further partners in this project.

The project was coordinated by Danish Hydraulic Institute, Denmark and funded by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation and the participating companies.
