RAZone

Development of sustainable and cost effective water quality management technology for the aquaculture industry

In the RAZone project the consortium will enhance the productivity of the aquaculture sector and minimize risks associated with application of ozone for water quality management in hatchery and ongrow farms that use recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) technology. This will be achieved by developing improved ozoneflotation technology that is cost effective, user friendly and safe both for stock and farm staff. The innovations of RAZone include novel ozone feeding system that ensures enhanced gas dispersion in water and maximizes contact between gas and water for separation of fine particles and dissolved organics in recirculated water. In addition, the development of RAZone includes an innovative flotation chamber where fine particles are efficiently removed.
