At present, there are high expectations placed on industries to ensure they minimize waste and maximize value creation from harvested materials.

In an effort to help satisfy such expectations for the aquaculture industry, New World Dairy partnered with CCFI and researchers from the Fisheries and Marine Marine Institute to investigate the potential of a Muckbuster or Flexibuster unit (a novel piece of equipment produced in the United Kingdom) for processing waste generated by salmon farming operations.

This research effort showed this equipment could successfully generate value from industry waste and prevent material from going to landfill, while creating additional revenue generation for one of Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest dairy producers.
