Project Tittle: Nanobubble application in the aquaculture system

Project Description:

Clean water is one of the most important determining factors in the aquaculture system includes some essential parameters such as dissolved oxygen (DO), turbidity, TDS, and pH level. We successfully developed a diffuser-based porous ceramic structure capable of generating nanobubbles with an average size of 600 nm. The applications of nanobubbles diffuser and its integration in the aquaculture wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) are promising to improve water quality challenges. The presence of nanobubbles in the systems expecting to play an important role in enhancing dissolved oxygen prevented the pathogens. The investigation includes the fundamental roles of the nanobubbles in the flotation system to reduced turbidity (TDS), ammonia removal, and providing a high concentration of dissolved oxygen. The design and developed WWTP were also necessary to be tested to the recirculating aquaculture system with the high economic fish commodity in high density.
