Problem description Growth of population requires increase of food production by 60-70% in 2050 compared to 2000. While we cannot produce enough food by agriculture, aquaculture production is growing rapidly. Fish deceases is a limiting factor when growing in natural conditions. Due to the technology development land-based aquaculture in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) close to markets is becoming a sustainable and cost-efficient solution. The major limiting factors are: off-flavoring and deceases due to water quality, high costs of energy and waste treatment. Solution To address these problems, we have developed a unique cost-efficient automated water treatment system which recycles 100% of fluid wastes into distilled water, steam, gas, green energy, mineral fertilizers, and proteins for fish feed. Unique competitive solution Unlike traditional expensive modules with cyclical process we have developed continuous process, which reduces the costs considerably and enables handling of large volumes of liquid wastes. They can both considerably reduce costs of waste treatment, increase quality of water to the maximum and provide extra revenue streams by production of fertilizers, green energy and proteins by recycling wastes and turning RAS into sustainable circular economy system. Market It is expected high growth of water treatment market to $13.3 bln. in 2030 from $7.2 bln. today. This solution has a large potential to disrupt global market for water treatment systems for land-based aquaculture with Recirculating Aquaculture Systems. Water Recycling System is fully applicable for all other global water treatment markets which enables quick scaling up in by moving to municipal sewage treatment, sludge storages, wastes form food production, production of drinking water from contaminated sources, production of fresh water from seawater.
