BAT-AEL discharge requirements

The new Bat-AEL (Best Available Technology associated emission levels) requirements from the EU with regard to emissions from fish slaughterhouses and fish processing plants give stricter emission permits. BAT-AEL requirements will also apply to fishmeal and fish oil facilities from 2027.

Fjell has the technology for both thickening, dewatering and drying of waste water from these various production facilities.

Fjell FRS Wastewater treatment systems

Our various wastewater treatment systems can be used for various industrial processes that generate wastewater:

  • Land-based fish farming facilities for smolt, post-smolt and food fish.
    • Flow-through system
    • RAS production plants.
  • Closed and semi-closed aquaculture plants in the sea.
  • Traditional fish farms in sea with collection of faeces and feed residues.
  • Fish processing plants & slaughterhouses
  • Fish meal and fish oil processing plant

Fjell FRS High Capture Separation wastewater treatment system

Step 1: 15-20 m3/hour wastewater is treated with coagulants (iron chloride) – binds opp fine material (dissolved and suspended)

Step 2: The wastewater is treated with polymer to create strong flocs 

Step 3: Separation on bandfilter 1. The optimized wastewater flows onto the first bandfilter which thickens the sludge up to 5% dry matter content and separates clean reject water from sludge.

Step 4: In direct extention of the first band filter the thickened sludge is led to a second band filter without any more treatment wit chemicals or polymer. This bandfilter dewaters the sludge up to a dry matter content of above 20%.  

Typical SS concentration in effluent water /reject: 15-20 mg /liter.
