HYDROPONICS & AQUACULTURE

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 HYDROPONICS & AQUACULTURE?

Introducing a better way to feed your community.

Hydroponics and aquaculture are sustainable forms of agriculture that allow you to grow substantially more food using less water and land than traditional agricultural practices. Housed within a facility, water is used to grow both produce and protein, such as fish or shrimp, without the use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. No matter your climate, vertical farming with hydroponics and aquaculture can produce fresh local food that is both safe and cost-effective. By using the best parts of different agricultural techniques, this growing process establishes food security in a sustainable way.

How Does Hydroponics & Aquaculture Work?

Both hydroponics and aquaculture use the best parts of controlled environment settings to mimic natural ecosystems.
Did you know that fish are one of the world’s most critical sources of protein?
At Novus Earth, our aquaculture systems use nutrient-rich water in a controlled setting to rear and harvest aquatic organisms such as fish or shrimp. Within the same building, we offer sustainable growing practices through vertically stacked hydroponics to optimize water use while minimizing our footprint. By combining these controlled ecosystems in one location, Novus is enabling the growth of fruits, vegetables and protein year-round.

Purpose-Built Hydroponic & Aquaculture Systems

  • Sustainable Energy
  • Individualized Environment Pods
  • Customizable Growing Conditions
Novus Earth’s controlled environment agricultural facilities are operated entirely on sustainable geothermal energy. This sustainable energy provides both the heat and electricity needed to develop a customizable growing environment for the production of aquatic organisms (fish/shrimp) and produce (fruits/vegetables).

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.

Aquaculture and Hydroponics

The Revolutionary Benefits of Hydroponics & Aquaculture

With Novus Earth’s growing facilities, we unlock the earth’s potential to support sustainable agriculture practices. Using the earth’s natural heating capabilities, Novus sources sustainable energy for both electricity and heat production, both of which are used to create ideal growing conditions for hydroponic and aquaculture practices using a levelized cost of energy.

Grow More Food With Less

Compared to traditional agriculture, hydroponics recycles water in the system and only requires 10% of the water required for traditional field crop watering. This method of vertical farming also produces 8x more food. These optimal hydroponic growing conditions would then allow for you to grow 24 strawberries instead of 3, using up to 90% less water in a shorter period of time!

Become More Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

Produce Healthy & Organic Food

The produce grown by hydroponics is free of pesticides, herbicides, and other harsh chemicals. Additionally, fish are free of growth hormones and antibiotics. This means that the hydroponically grown food and aquaculture is healthy and meets high quality standards.

Achieve Security of Food Supply

Worry no longer about the pricing and variability of food. With hydroponic farming and aquaculture, you can produce fresh seafood and produce in all climates, year-round. Using geothermal energy allows the growing facility to be self-sustaining, ensuring acts of nature and/or power failures do not impact growth cycles. This results in fresh, local food available to communities regardless of supply-chain disruptions.

Keep Food Production Local

Eliminate Diseases & Cross-Contamination

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

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