About AquaPro

AquaPro’s goal is to solve an environmental challenge. We will contribute to sustainable waste management and develop a technology that can be used to process other types of biological waste for valuable plant and/or energy.

Background

We have our background and history back to Atlas Stord (Stord Bartz and Stord International), which was world leader in drought and press deliveries for fisheries, sugar, alcohol, food and sludge markets.

The co-founders of AquaPro have technology and expertise in the product areas Atlas Stord had, from sludge to fuel, among other things.

About the project – from sludge to value
A mobile processing facility will be built and developed. It transforms sludge/waste from the aquaculture industry into combustible material.

The fuel will have a great potential in cement production or district heating. We will also sell dried sludge back to aquaculture/fish farming, as energy.

The project is in the start-up phase and the focus is to develop the technology, as well as the creation of solutions for sludge handling, food and biowaste.

Our customers are hatcheries, smoltan facility, test facilities in the sea (closed cages), cement production, district heating plants. We also have the same segment in the overseas market.

Utility

The challenges of society to be solved

  • “Det grønne skiftet”project
  • Increase world food production
  • Reduce pollution by collecting environmentally harmful sludge from the fjords
  • Reduce CO2 emissions by making fuel for the cement industry
  • Strengthens Norwegian seafood production’s sustainability

BUSINESS CONCEPT
TO FURTHER DEVELOP KNOWN TECHNOLOGY AND EXPERTISE IN THE PROCESSING INDUSTRY FOR USE IN THE AQUACULTURE, TO GIVE THE INDUSTRY MORE SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS.

Technology

AquaPro’s focus is that the technology must be sustainable and there should be a greater environmental gain. AquaPro’s technology should not contribute to unnecessary emissions to air or water. Therefore, our process is closed. This is also to avoid infection.

AquaPro’s goal is to utilize the raw material in the best possible way in the process. This can help us to extract energy in the form of biogas during the process, without the nutritional content of the raw material being changed. Extraction of biogas will also assist in the separation of liquid and solid matter.

The processes are roughly simple; the challenges lie in the solid to be separated from the water, and calculations of the volume of the individual machines that will perform the processes in the different stages.

VISION

TO BE A CENTRAL PARTICIPANT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY AND PRODUCTS FOR RECYCLING OF WASTE FROM FOOD PRODUCTION, AGRICULTURE AND AQUACULTURE. WE SHALL BE ONE OF THE LEADING ACTORS TO STRENGTH THIS INDUSTRY FOR TODAYS CHALLENGES IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND RECYCLING.
