BioMar required a wastewater treatment plant for its new off-sewer Tasmanian aquaculture factory that would ensure compliant effluent.
Aerofloat was engaged by the aquaculture company to design a wastewater treatment plant that would allow its new Tasmanian factory to meet the strict guidelines set by Tasmania’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The resulting system ensured compliant effluent that could be irrigated to the surrounding land.
“Aerofloat have been super easy to work with right from the start. They have also assisted with issues outside their scope – the team have always been available and very helpful. I’d be happy to recommend Aerofloat to anyone looking for a wastewater treatment solution.”

Global company The BioMar Group, supplies high performance aquaculture feeds to over eighty countries around the world. Its Tasmanian factory was built to supply the expanding aquaculture market in Australia and New Zealand.
The $56 million project provided a significant boost to the local economy, creating new jobs for the local community and ensuring significant growth for the state’s aquaculture industry. The facility is projected to produce up to 110,000 tonnes per annum of aquafeed product.
With no sewer connection at its Tasmanian site, the company was looking at trucking away its wastewater at significant expense to meet the strict guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). BioMar met with Aerofloat to discuss a range of options that would ensure compliant effluent but also save on expensive transport disposal fees.
Given the regional location of the site, BioMar also wanted the system to be low maintenance and offer remote monitoring capabilities.
