Producing heat and electricity from fish farm byproducts
Ecology teaches us that in natural systems there is no waste, only wasted matter. Under this principle, everything is food for something else. Intensive animal feeding operations create by-products that can be used for other valuable purposes. These range from fertilizer products to energy products. The feasibility or opportunity to re-use by-products is best explored on a case by case basis to determine what the ideal options for a particular fish farm, climate and location are. Aquacare associates have extensive experience with many practical types of waste to energy and waste to fertilizer technologies. Using and re-using all available resources efficiently helps a fish farm to operate more sustainably, and thus more profitably.
