AQUAPONICS

Revolutionize Your Food Production

You want to solve the greatest food security challenges of your municipality. We have the revolutionary technology to help.

WHAT IS AQUAPONICS?

Introducing a better way to feed your community.

Aquaponics is a sustainable form of agriculture that allows you to grow substantially more food with less water, energy consumption, costs, and waste. No matter your climate, aquaponics can produce fresh local food that is safe, cost-effective, and fresh, and local. By using the best parts of different growing techniques, aquaponics is the game changer your municipality needs.

How Does Aquaponics Work?

Aquaponics uses the best parts of vertical hydroponics and recirculating vertical aquaculture systems to mimic natural ecosystems. At Novus Earth, our aquaponics systems use nutrient-rich water and fish effluent to ensure optimum plant growth. The media in which the plants grow and the beneficial bacteria they produce are then used to purify and improve the water quality which is then returned to the fish tank, and the cycle continues.

Purpose-Built Aquaponics Systems

  • Sustainable Energy
  • Individualized Environment Pods
  • Customizable Growing Conditions

Novus Earth’s controlled environment aquaponics (CEA) facilities are operated entirely on sustainable geothermal energy. Each modular facility includes individualized environment pods that create customizable growing conditions for produce and aquaculture. The modular design effectively reduces cross-contamination of crops and enables the reproduction of the system in even the most remote locations.

CASE STUDY

Hinton, Alberta Sustainable Energy Project

With the use of a 32,000m² controlled environment aquaponics (CEA) facility and our closed-loop deep-well geothermal system, Novus Earth will provide a levelized cost of heat for both aquaponics farm and the Town of Hinton facilities, an expandable energy system, carbon offsets, local employment, fresh local seafood and produce in all seasons, and much more.

The Revolutionary Benefits of Aquaponics

With Novus Earth’s controlled environment aquaponics (CEA) facilities, we can help you unlock the impressive benefits of aquaponics farming.

Grow More Food With Less

Compared to traditional agriculture, aquaponics can use 1/6th of the water to grow 8x more food. In addition to using less water, aquaponics systems also require less energy, have lower operating costs, and produce less waste than the traditional alternatives such as vertical farming and hydroponics.

Produce Healthy & Organic Food

The produce grown by aquaponics is free of pesticides, herbicides, and other harsh chemicals. Additionally, fish are free of growth hormones and antibiotics and the systems do not require mined or manufactured fertilizers due to the natural fertilizer produced from fish waste. This means that aquaponics food is healthy and meets organic standards. 

Become More Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

Aquaponics is a sustainable form of agriculture that mimics the natural processes of Earth’s waterways. The only input required to sustain an aquaponics system is fish food. The rest of the system is self-sustaining and the aquaculture and plants support each other.

Achieve Security of Food Supply

Worry no longer about the pricing and variability of food. With Aquaponics farming, you can produce fresh seafood and produce in all climates, year-round. This will help bring fresh, local food to communities that have never experienced this level of food security before.

Eliminate Diseases & Cross-Contamination

In traditional soil-based farming, soil-borne diseases are a common concern. Aquaponics does not require soil to grow crops and eliminates this challenge from the food production process. Additionally, Novus Earth’s aquaponics systems feature a modular design to prevent cross-contamination of crops as well as eliminate disease from open water fish farming.

Keep Food Production Local

When food is produced locally, it is much more reliable and fresh than food that must be imported from other locations. Aquaponics allows you to produce local food for your community so you don’t have to worry about the variability, quality and costs of imported food.

Aquaponics systems do not use any pesticides, herbicides, or hormones to produce food. This makes aquaponic food a healthier alternative to food produced through traditional agriculture. Aquaponics also gives you total control over the nutrients that your plants receive.

Although hydroponics solves many of the issues of traditional agriculture, it also offers its own challenges. These issues include high costs, difficulty managing pH balances, and diseases. By combining the benefits of vertical hydroponics and recirculating vertical aquaculture farming, aquaponics mimics a natural system that solves the problems associated with traditional hydroponics and aquaculture on their own.
