The neomar technology supports the utilization of waste and remaining nutrients. This is possible, due to the low water renewal rate of less than 1% of the system volume per day. Particulate and dissolved nutrients are removed and concentrated by the water treatment and can be used efficiently in following processes.

 

By constructing food chains, which can be also seen as product chains, the profitability of aquaculture production can be increased sustainably. Remaining nutrients are used to gain new, valuable biomass, as for instance algae or invertebrates. The reuse of nutrients promotes an efficient utilization of resources and minimizes the environmental impact. The additionally gained biomass increases economic diversification and can raise the profit per production unit.

We are involved in several research projects about this topic.
