The agreement brings together MMC First Process' track record in fish handling solutions, and Apria Systems' cutting-edge water treatment solution Eloxiras.

The process, which is based on electrochemical oxidation, removes nitrogen compounds (including ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates) and organic matter while simultaneously providing in-situ disinfection in one single stage, offering predictable and stable water quality, according to Pedro Gomez, CEO of Apria Systems.

Eloxiras has the potential to be a game-changer in the aquaculture industry, says Eivind Vinje, VP R&D in MMC First Process.

“We were very impressed with Apria Systems and the extent of R&D, testing and verification that has been done during development and commercialization of Eloxiras. The solution is applicable to a wide array of RAS systems, ranging from live fish carriers operating in closed circulation over large distances, to land-based post-smolt facilities and holding tanks,” he said in a press release.

According to Gomez, Eloxiras can help to ensure water quality independently of water temperature, sudden changes in biomass densities, short time operations or water exchange limitations.

“We are confident this strategic partnership will boost our mutual business opportunities within the wellboat and land-based aquaculture markets. The combination of know-how, technical capabilities, sales force and pre- and post-sales services will allow us to offer a reliable unique integrated solution for our customers, based on cutting-edge technologies. We are happy to include this product range in our portfolio and are looking forward to bringing this product to the market,” stated Petter Leon Fauske, CEO of MMC First Process.
