Governments are interested in Aquaponics, but they don’t know how to work with it

Governments are interested in Aquaponics, but they don’t know how to work with it

Governments interest in aquaponics but also other advanced technologies like hydroponics or aquaculture is raising. That confirmed also interested in our consulting services for these areas last year.

Government project in Czech Republic

We have been providing our consulting services also on the czech market, where the aquaponics was a smaller part of a complex project to use efficiently the ground water. The project was combined with the energetic part and so we participated with EkoWATT the Center for Renewable Resources that won the project.

Unrealistic ideas mainly in Aquaponics

Within the consulting services we are trying to understand the client’s situation and bring the best solution for them. That often includes clarifying the situation with the advanced technologies.

We are meeting more frequently with the unrealistic ideas about the projects mainly in Aquaponics but also other production systems. The aquaponics still holds a sticker of a “perpetuum mobile” where you can combine a several kinds of plants and fish but it is a far from the truth.

Aquaponics situation

Aquaponics that combines hydroponics and aquaculture is logically more difficult because of there are 2 living organism, plants and fish, and so it needs more specialized equipment and know-how as you can see in Aquaponic scheme.

Commercial size aquaponics is can work but it is necessary to design and make the aquaponic farm very simple to reduce the risk and variable factors and this is probably the most common disillusion widespread around the word.

Lack of talents and knowledge

The MENA region including the Qatar have a lack of talents and knowledge in the advanced farming technologies like a hydroponics, aquaponics and aquaculture as it emerged from the gradual learning about this region from the cooperation with Qoot and it also confirmed the CEO from Agritecture that was the host of THORILEX Talks.

The THORILEX Ltd. launched brand new products that brings new light on the aquaponics market and with that connected hydroponics and aquaculture markets. THORILEX uses quality materials like stainless steel for most products. The products are design to easy construct and transport around the world similar to the IKEA pattern.

  • Automatic Vertical THORILEX Hydroponic System (THORILEX AVHS),
  • Multiuse THORILEX Hydroponic basket,
  • Self-cleaning THORILEX fish tanks,

All the products are protected and right now the products are placed in the THORILEX Aquaponic farm in a part of 2 Ha glasshouse area to generate and collect more data than from the laboratory tests. The data evaluation is expected until the end of the year.

It is possible to buy the products in advance booking for the introductory prices.

Hydroponics part

The Automatic Vertical THOIRLEX Hydroponic System is made from the stainless steel and brings up to 9 times higher production, easier harvesting and better climate for the plants. The system can be up to 8 meters high and it is possible to choose from different growing boxes by species of plant. It is also equipped with the special spraying system and is operated with a control and security system.

For the THORILEX AVHS was built special product website where can be downloaded case study that provides more information about the product. The website can be found HERE. (http://www.a-verticalfarming.com/)

The THORILEX Hydroponic reusable basket (7) is uniquely designed for long-life. The THORILEX Basket have modified bottom and higher stiffness of the material for easy and fast plant removing without the root system or basket damaging. It is suitable for the THORILEX Hydroponic system.

Aquaculture part

The THORILEX Fish tank is made from the stainless steel and it uses hydrodynamic water flow to remove the fish waste. It allows to regulate the height of the water and it is possible to add automatic feeder.

The products are possible to pack and delivery with minimal costs because the products are highly modular and it is simple to build without deep knowledge. This concept is similar to IKEA but this is just the products for the hydroponics and the aquaculture.  

The company already have interest from the Europe, China or North America.
