Growth on marine structures such as fish farms is one of the main challenges for the fish farming industry. Chemicals and mechanical cleaning processes are expensive, damaging for the environment, harmful for the fish inside the fish farms and the biota outside the installation.
NOCS has developed a possible new and environmentally friendly technology to combat this growth. The innovative solution is planned piloted on fish farms in Mid-Norway with support from the Norwegian Research Council. The project results can potentially save Norwegian fish farming industry several billion NOK annually.
The technology is an effective ecological cleaning solution for waste water management and sea water systems in marine, offshore and land based industry. The project result is planned to be developed further for global launch and to address cleaning challenges in other industries, both land and sea based.
