peroxides like hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid for sustainable aquaculture solutions and fish farming
Smart aquaculture solutions with hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid

Sustainable aquaculture with peroxides

Smart aquaculture solutions 

Evonik Active Oxygens supplies smart aquaculture solutions based on hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid for water quality control in fish, seafood, and shrimp farming. Our peroxides also disinfect processing equipment in aquaculture and fish farming.

Smart aquaculture solutions have significant potential to meet the food and feed demands of a growing world population. Yet successful and responsible farming of fish and shrimp can present a range of challenges, especially in recirculating aquaculture systems — from  water quality control to clean processing and packaging.

Discover our smart peroxide solutions for better water quality in recirculating aquaculture systems

ASPERIX® A&F hydrogen peroxide

Water quality is especially important in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS). Yet despite extensive mechanical and biological filtration, pollutants can accumulate over time, originating from, e.g., undigested feed, fish faeces, or other fish residues like skin or mucus.

ASPERIX® A&F hydrogen peroxide is an effective tool for improved water hygiene in RAS. It helps to decrease the level of pollutants through oxidation to a stable minimum. ASPERIX® A&F can be dosed manually or automatically via pipes and pumps into the water loop of the aquaculture system, such as in a side stream, before the filtration systems or the protein skimmer.

In water, the hydrogen peroxide oxidates the pollutants, resulting in smaller organic oxidation products such as aldehydes, carboxylic acids, etc, which can be more easily digested by the biological filters of the RAS. The hydrogen peroxide itself catalytically decomposes into oxygen and water only.

VIGOROX® Trident peracetic acid 

VIGOROX® Trident is a peracetic acid solution for recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), pond systems, and egg hatcheries. EPA-registered VIGOROX® Trident can be dosed directly into the tank. It is a highly effective biocide capable of treating a wide range of pathogens that can occur in RAS and on processing equipment.

After use, peracetic acid rapidly breaks down to water, oxygen, and acetic acid, thus requiring no additional steps to clean up any chemical residues.
