Poseidon's Biofilter is a nature-based solution for industry-wide problems. Onshore aquaculture production is growing to meet future protein demands. By 2050, there will be 10 billion people on earth needing sustainably produced food. While aquaculture can help meet future food demands, the industry's production of wastewater remains a problem. Poseidon's Biofilter is a novel solution for the onshore aquaculture industry. By treating water using algae, facilities can produce aquaculture products while creating valuable byproducts from the treatment process. Ready to be implemented at any marine or freshwater facility, Poseidon's Biofilter is a dissolved treatment solution that treats wastewater at the industry standard and meets the regulations of tomorrow while generating new streams of revenue.

A water treatment system is the smart investment for onshore aquaculture wastewater in comparison to trucking or dumping the waste. The treatment of dissolved solids such as ammonia and phosphorus is vital to the survival of onshore aquaculture. Putting the Fisheries Act Section 34(C)’s mandate against deleterious substances aside, fish cannot survive in tanks with ammonia above 0.5 mg/l, and dissolved solids biofilter treatment systems reduce maintenance costs. Poseidon’s Biofilter reduces maintenance cost for the facility through three metrics.
1. Efficiency in water quality requires less water to be pumped into a facility.
2. Recurring costs of Poseidon’s Biofilter over a ten year period is approximately
half in comparison to the current state-of-the-art bacteria biofilters.
3. The revenue generated by the valorization of the Biofilter’s byproducts create cost-savings passed onto the facility.
Each facility is different because of the species they are growing. That said, all facility benefit from the ability to recirculate their water.
