Large Scale Aquaponics-Systems
With Large Scale Systems we mean aquaponics systems, which produce food on a marketable, profitable and secure basis. Whilst the profitability of an aquaponics system increases with its size, upwards there is no limits, but the amount of the investment sets a minimum size. We plan build, monitor and maintain the Large Scale Systems together with our partners in research & development.
Aquaponics Systems Modules und Parts for Consumers
Besides the systems for professional food productions, we also build Systems for end consumers. These are still in the planning phase. Starting with small Indoor-Systems, which could replace traditional aquariums, to leaning greenhouses up to a 36sqm stand-alone System in a greenhouse, which can support a four headed family with fish and vegetable from the aquaponics.
Large Scale Aquaponics Systems
With Large Scale Systems we mean aquaponics systems for the production of fish and vegetable in a marketable and profitable manner. While the productivity of a system rises with its size and there is no upper limit for the surface area.
But the investment itself sets a minimum size in order to work rentable, which again depends on the specific planned kind of aquaponics system.
We plan, build, monitor and maintain the large scale systems together with our partners from research & development and with the specific subsections (greenhouse, heating etc.).
Characteristics of our Large Scale Aquaponics Systems
- Build mainly out of low prized standard modules (greenhouse, heating, hydroponic modules)
- Decoupled Aquaponics (DAPS) with different cycles and the optimal conditions for the specific culture
- Anaerobic sludge water treatment level (via UASB/EGSB bioreactors) for remineralization of the process water
- concentration of the nutrients to meet specific plant requirements
Speciality “Urban Farming” and “Vertical Gardening”
Recently the topic urban farming is discussed increasingly often. This means the cultivation of plants in urban environments, which stands for short supply ways and thus fresh products. Since the space in cities is limited and a soilless cultivation is mandatory, aquaponics is the ultimate use case for these urban farming systems.
But the transformation of industrial wasteland into modern aquaponics systems is very expensive and maybe yet to expensive to compete with conventional agriculture products. Aquaponics can also be realized less expensive in the suburban areas in standard greenhouses. The individual renovation of old factories needs even much more individual planning also with large competence-teams (architect, structural engineer, hydroponic specialist, etc.) while this is obsolete with standard greenhouses and fishtanks.
Our Fundament is Scientific Research
To place our Large Scale Systems on the most stable foundation, we rely on intense scientific research. While aquaponics has to be investigated further more, we fund the education of Simon Goddek, a pHd-student and active scientific publisher in the Field of aquaponics, since 2014.
Aquaponics- Modules or parts for Consumers
There is also an increasing demand on the consumer market, where aquaponics rightly stands for high yields on limited spaces. In the last years the portion of people who learn about aquaponics and do aquaponics on their own is constantly rising in the last years.
But many people who would like to own and run an aquaponics systems, are not able to build the system completely on their own, using parts from a construction store including tubes, glueing, siphone testing, etc. Here we want to close the gap and build simple but premium solutions.
Indoor-Module for Home Aquaponics – Small Modules for rooms as an alternative to the classic aquarium.
- Indoor-Modules, Home Aquaponics – Small modules to enhance a room which produces food
- Modules for gardens for cold and warm aquaponics systems
- Additional modules for swimming pools or ponds, kio-ponds etc. (combined with filtration)
- Leaning against wall greenhouses
- Stand alone greenhouse system (12, 18 u. 34qm, sun-alighned, see picture below)
- Integration to residential buildings, Atrium-Solutions (Off-Grid Solutions, Earthships, etc.)
