The bio-filter is a nature-based solution for an industry wide problems, specifically the aquaculture industry that's traditional filtration methods are unsustainable. The aquaculture industry is receiving bad press and even harsher regulatory scrutiny for their treatment of their effluence. Clean Valley's bio-filter is here to help the on-shore aquaculture sector that generally has had three options for their effluence. Dump it, truck it, or pay tens of thousands to treat it. For example, Biofishency our most similar competitor uses chemical beds and a four separate part process to treat nitrogenous waste for re-circulation aquaculture systems. Additionally, they charge companies like Sustainable Blue to Cooke Aquaculture $60,000 to $90,000 USD to treat their effluence when rather effluence can become an asset.

Who are the key competitors? Who is target market? The on-shore aquaculture industry is a growing segment of the larger aquaculture industry that globally generates four hundred billion USD annually. The on-shore aquaculture industry has three different types of systems and they are flow-through systems, re-circulation aquaculture systems, and hatcheries. The largest players in the industry operate globally such as a Cooke Aquaculture, Clearwater or Acadia Seaplants. There are smaller to medium size local systems such as Sustainable Blue. Our goal is meet the needs of the smaller systems to co-develop the system before partnering with a larger player and going global. The Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) has gone from scarcity to surplus and will continue to eb and flow as the pandemic peaks and flattens.
