Development of Innovative Plastic Structures for Aquiculture using a new composite with crop waste as reinforcing filler

Other sectorsAdvanced materialsSustainable materialsSustainable agriculture and forestryCompoundingInjectionEuropean

Objectives:

To design, produce and optimise innovative aquaculture structures (rafts for mollusc farming, flotation rings & devises for sea-based fish farms, tanks for land based fish farms) using a new plastic composite reinforced with organic filler (crop waste) specially developed in the project for applications in permanent contact with water.

Description:

The project combine two completely different waste flows (plastic and crop) to produce new aquiculture structures. The project solves the problems associated with rafts or other wooden structures in permanent contact with water, such as the reduction of mechanical properties (due to the effects of water) and rotting.  Simultaneously, it’s  an economically viable solution for crop residues, using them as fillers in the manufacture of this new plastic composite. The new composite is 100% recyclable.
