AmpliAqua is a fully operational unit of an innovative Aquaponic System that demonstrates how inland fish farming can adopt a sustainable and viable Aquaponic system, by integrating new solutions for ensuring adequate solid waste management.
Aquaculture and hydroponics, when used in combination and in balance of micro-nutrients (Aquaponics) represent a technology with the potential to play a key role in creating a more sustainable and resilient agri-food system through the development of a symbiotic ecosystem that requires less land and water and contributes for CO2 mitigation.
Ampliaqua’s introduces key innovations to aquaponic systems that increases its productivity and sustainability when producing fish (aquaculture), greens (hydroponics) and micro-algae. This multitrophic system contributes for CO2 mitigation, resulting from algae and plants capture, and solid waste treatment in a biodigester minimizing the greenhouse gas emissions. AmpliAqua is modular and replicable and can be deployed globally, even in areas with limited resources.
