Efficient mort and sludge collection reduces environmental footprint with 50% at sea.
Efficient mort collection and filtration reduces environmental footprint.
“The fjord can’t breathe. Now the breeders want to collect all the waste that would otherwise go straight into the sea.” Was published in Norwegian newspaper BT recently the Norwegian company Lift Up plays a central role in improving the environment.
Our primary motivation is to figure out what the fish farmer can do to reduce the impact from organic loading they have on the environment and determine if the waste can be utilized as a resource, says Jarle Ragnhildstveit from Lift Up.
We anticipated that our fully automated back-to-barge pumping system, collecting morts from the cage bottom also would be durable for sludge removal. We have proven to remove about 50% of the sludge in Atlantic salmon net pens. Waste that would normally go straight into the fjord has now been caught, pumped up to the barge, filtered and solids have been collected.
CM Aqua has provided Lift Up with a novel filtration system consisting of non-metallic X-version drum filter and AL2 AQUA belt filter for optimal, corrosion free and smooth operations of removal and up-concentration of solids in aquaculture.
CM Aqua is known for providing reliable filters in fish farming and water treatment for more than 30 years. We specialized in filters for saltwater applications, and we are proud of being selected for the Lift Up System.
