Traditional food production relies on agriculture that requires enormous amounts of water and extensive land areas. By reusing vital resources and redesigning salmon farming, it is possible to ease the pressure on nature.

EFC changes the math for salmon farming and creates the farming industry of the future

We must cut the world's CO2- emissions

Even if we reduce our consumption dramatically, the planet's average temperature will rise by 2 degrees, which will have enormous consequences.

30 % of all CO2 emissions come from food production

In other words, we cannot continue to spend the same amount of resources for food.

Protein production requires extensive land use

According to estimates by the United Nations, we will need over 50 % more calories to feed people by the middle of the century.

The equation doesn't balance out

Food production accounts for 70 % of all water consumption and 80 % of all deforestation in the world. The human population is growing, and our modern lifestyle continuously puts pressure on food demand.

We need to break away from conventional thinking

From CO2- emissions for protein production

By capturing CO2 in farming production and reuse this as protein in fish feed, we can reduce the area consumption by 70 %, compared to protein from soy production, - while reducing emissions.

Our plants can be placed close to the end users so that the environmental footprint from transport is minimal, without the need for cultivated land.

Improved fish welfare

We have significantly reduced the amount of antibiotics used in fish farms. Our fish tanks are built as separate modules to prevent the spread of disease, and salmon lice.

Sludge handling and CO2-capture improve water quality and provide favourable living conditions for the fish.

Preserving biodiversity

In EFC's m-RAS system of independent, stand-alone tanks, we have demonstrated lower mortality and no escape of fish.

Escaped farmed salmon pose a threat to biodiversity in local waterways, and can affect the ecosystem such as benthic organisms, production through photosynthesis (primary production) and increasing parasite transmission.

By reducing deforestation in connection with feed production, we also contribute to maintaining biodiversity in some of the world's most vulnerable places.
