13/06/2018: A cutting-edge recirculating aquaculture system

by Pedro Gómez, CEO of Apria Systems and German Santos Bregel at APRIA Systems

Apria Systems is a technology-based company with more than 10 years of experience specialising in consultancy and engineering services.

With a determined sustainable and environmental commitment, Apria Systems are strongly focused on innovation to provide advanced efficient solutions –mainly based on membrane and advanced oxidation technologies– for the purification of industrial streams in the chemical and related industries to fulfill the environmental regulations.

At present, one of the company’s most ambitious and innovative activities relates to the aquaculture sector. Over the last few years, the implementation of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) has increased worldwide.

However, these systems are expensive to purchase and operate, and require high biomass culture densities, implying the fast accumulation of toxic metabolised compounds in low water volumes, and, hence, demanding significant volumes of fresh water. Thus, RAS end-users need cost-efficient technologies able to work under these conditions. The current solutions available on the market are mainly bio-filtration and ozone treatments.

Unfortunately, they cannot properly work under these challenging conditions, showing efficacy fluctuations and start-up periods that increase the production stages and their costs. This framework encouraged APRIA Systems to develop a novel technology for the treatment and reutilisation of marine and brackish water in RAS: the ELOXIRAS System.
