Need for a technically viable technology for sustainable aquaculture
Nutrients not in a "sustainable" manner.
The immobilized microbe utilized excessive nutrients from the marine recirculation system and converted the waste into biomass. The immobilized cells could be harvested and processed to become nutrient supplementary
Biological filtration not in a "sustainable" manner.
Aeration and oxygenation
Ornamental as well as food fish
(fish, shrimp, oyster, etc)
waste and solid removal
DisinfectionSystem Design & Activities
The viable cells will be captured inside polymerized capsules and packed in a handling cartridge. The handling cartridge with water driven force for re-suspension of the polymerized capsules maximized total reaction area of the capsules.
The microbe is able to grow and survive in the polymerized capsules. The microbes utilized excessive nutrients from the water under simulation.
Results revealed that the immobilized cell is able to stabilize water quality and production high omega-3 cell.
Polymerized capsules with viable cell at day-0.
Polymerized capsules with viable cell at day-3
Project Milestones not in a "sustainable" manner.
