 Blue Ocean Technology signs long-term agreement with water treatment solution provider Sorbwater Technology. 

 The co-operation minimises emissions in water and puts a value on sludge from the aquaculture industry, says Jan Henning Legreid, Blue Ocean Technology CEO. 

 Sorbwater Technology has developed a suite of completely biodegradable solutions for industrial high-performance water treatment applications. The solutions are particularly suitable for the oil and gas industry and aquaculture.

 Through using the Sorbwater technology, utilising natural alienates, total particle emissions from aquaculture facilities are significantly reduced. Used in combination with Blue Ocean Technology's organic filter, the combined heavy metal and particle content in the sludge is reduced with up to 90 percent. Consequently the nutritious aquaculture biomass waste (food leftover and excrements/faeces) may be transformed to fertiliser. Unlike various thermic solutions, Blue Ocean Technology enables turning aquaculture sludge into a resource. 

 International perspective

Svein Egil Steen, CEO, Sorbwater Technology commented, "We are delighted to have been chosen as Blue Ocean's partner. It further strengthens our position as a supplier of green technology into the segment. The deal will also help to put us on the map in the fast growing, global fish-farming and aquaculture markets. We will provide our green flocculation chemical, Sorbfloc, and separation technology to Blue Ocean Technology for use in the global aquaculture market."

 Norwegian innovation in key aquaculture markets
 Mr Henning Legreid commented, "Aquaculture and fish farming are vital industries for Norway, indeed the world, moving forward. We are extremely happy to be working with our trusted and valued partner Sorbwater Technology in such an exciting area bringing Norwegian innovation to these important markets.

 He continued, "Or technologies and know-how combined truly shows that green solutions can be profitable solutions. And in addition to turning waste into a resource, it enables production of bigger biomasses - as the restricting factor tends to be the waste emission quota.
