EcoFishCircle AS (EFC) is a fish farming technology company that will establish a new type of land-based salmon farming. In collaboration with the sister company G2F we will significantly reduce the climate impact from aquaculture.
EFC will take onshore fish farming to the next level. By introducing the newest technology such as carbon capture, blockchain technology and artificial intelligence we can produce higher quality salmon more effectively, sustainable and with better welfare for the fish.
EFC will link new improved RAS together with new clean technologies enabling production of food with significantly reduced carbon footprint as well as securing consumer safety and fish welfare
Our RAS (Recycling Aquaculture System) design is simple and modular, which introduces a unique level of customization for the producer. Every tank being self-sustained without interaction with other tanks increase production safety and eliminate the need for large industrial housing, and reduce time to market. The area between fish tanks can be used for agricultural production or even bird habitats. EFC’s Fish farming set up and CO2 capture requires about 700 times less land compared to traditional farming to produce the same amount of food.
Reduced carbon footprint and feed production
In our production CO2 from the fish is captured and recycled back through the fish feed. This eliminates CO2 emissions from the fish farm. Further the captured CO2 is converted to proteins used in the feed, eliminating the use of e.g., soy protein. Capture of CO2 from the fish represent 0.6 Kg per Kg of fish. Further the emission from soy production and transportation equates to about 1.6 kg CO2 per kg round fish. The total carbon savings by this concept is 2.2 kg CO2 per kg fish. Our calculations demonstrates that about 30% of the fish’s own feed can be made from recycling the carbon, with an estimated reduction of carbon footprint of 40% over traditional farming.
Our proprietary technology allows EFC to extract CO2 efficiently from the fish tank in concentrated form. This secure not to suffocate the fish by CO2 as well supplying the G2F process with sufficient CO2 for producing a protein rich biomass for reuse as a protein ingredient in the fish feed. Since it is also biologically generated, it is an attractive green material. EFC therefore introduce aquaculture as a favorable source of biogenic carbon.
EFC will set a new standard in production costs, food safety, fish welfare, and carbon footprint becoming a serious contributor to the climate control efforts.
40% reduction of CO2 emissions compared to ordinary fish-farming.
How to participate
We are offering the opportunity to be a partner in Norway’s participation at EXPO 2020 DUBAI, one of the world’s largest business and cultural events. A partnership will give your company, organisation or cluster a unique platform to gain international exposure and ensure Norway stands out in competition with the other close to 200 participating nations.
