Krüger Kaldnes and Veolia Water Technologies are committed to offering our customers sustainable solutions. We are currently the only Norwegian company offering carbon footprint calculations in our processes. Our substantial efforts in land-based aquaculture are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
People are consuming fish like never before. According to the United Nations' food and agriculture organisation, the global fish consumption per person has doubled from 10 kilograms in 1960 to 20 kilograms in 2020. Aquaculture has contributed to this increasing trend. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for high quality fish also continues to increase, and land-based aquaculture seems to be the obvious solution.
Increasing profit and sustainability
There are both environmental and financial risks in operating within aquaculture and there is an extensive need to gain more control over operations. This has increased the focus on land-based aquaculture facilities that produce seafood with a small impact on coastal fishing and the environment. Land-based aquaculture also reduces the carbon footprint of conventional seafood supply chains and contributes to a better environment with less financial risk, making it more profitable.
Krüger Kaldnes offers competency within sustainable aquaculture that reduces our use of resources thus reducing our impact on the environment. Our whole identity is built on sustainability and green objectives and our goal is to help customers preserve resources, regardless of the facility's location.
By using Kaldnes™RAS, and by constructing land-based facilities in proximity of important markets, fish farmers reduce both their shipping costs and delivery times, while being able to offer fresh products to consumers.
For example, our waste products from our fish farms are used to produce vegetables, which means that waste becomes raw materials, and raw materials become food – and both the trout and the vegetable is available in your local grocery store.
