 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The proposal IDREEM will create smarter greener growth for one of Europe’s most important industrial sectors: the aquaculture industry. It will achieve this through taking waste streams that are at present lost to the environment (as pollution) and converting them into secondary raw materials for the production of high value organisms such as seaweed and shellfish. To do this IDREEM will develop, demonstrate and benchmark (against existing production techniques) innovative production technology for the European aquaculture industry. Aquaculture is now a major component of global food security and is the fast growing food production sector globally. However the European industry is stagnating. The industry is facing real questions of economic and environmental sustainability. IDREEM will address these questions by working with a range of SME aquaculture producers across Europe to develop deploy and quantitatively assess the new production technology. Using an integrated approach defining the environmental, economic and social impact of the new production technology, life cycle assessment and life cycle costing will be used to quantify and demonstrate the economic and environmental benefits. Along with this process a combined environmental and economic modelling platform will be used to provide an evidence based decision making framework for aquaculture producers, regulators and policy makers. Throughout the project a dedicated impact coordinator will ensure that the project is fully engaged with the wide range of stakeholders, inviting their participation from the beginning and throughout the project (specifically in the form of a project advisory committee) and ensuring that results are fed back into that community. This will ensure that there is a rapid up take of the new production technology across the European sector, creating opportunity and support for a range of new SME producers, processors and up the value chain'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded initiative is taking the first steps in deploying a new, eco-friendly aquaculture technology across Europe.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Aquaculture is a key global food production sector, but the industry faces both economic and environmental sustainability challenges. Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) is a new production technology that can reduce pollution while increasing productivity and profit by turning waste streams into new products.

In order to develop, deploy and assess IMTA across Europe, the 'Increasing industrial resource efficiency in European mariculture' (http://www.idreem.eu/ (IDREEM)) project was set up. Working with small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) aquaculture producers, IDREEM is identifying the risks and benefits of IMTA and developing decision-support tools for industry and policymakers.

Researchers began by collecting environmental, social and economic data concerning the existing practice of fish monoculture. The economic studies showed that SMEs are currently under pressure from local and regional competitors, and that IMTA would boost their businesses through market differentiation.

Further environmental modelling was also done, and new protocols for monitoring the environmental performance of the new IMTA system were developed. Researchers also discovered that legislative and regulatory processes are often lacking, and that policy reform in areas such as food safety and environmental management is needed.

IDREEM is now implementing some form of IMTA within every SME producer taking part in the project, and monitoring continues. The type of IMTA depends on location and other factors, but seaweed, mussel, sea urchin and oyster production in the Atlantic and Mediterranean are included.

The eventual deployment of IMTA across the European aquaculture sector is expected to reduce reliance on primary resources through waste recycling. This not only encourages the sustainable production of aquaculture products, it creates opportunities for SMEs as users and developers of green technologies.
