Sustainable Netting Solutions for the Aquaculture Industry
Garware Technical Fibres, India, have collaborated with Scottish company W&J Knox to pioneer the development of HDPE solutions for the aquaculture industry.
Virgin HDPE nets have 3.5 times lower carbon footprint as compared to Virgin Nylon. HDPE nets are easier to recycle and produce a lower carbon footprint as compared to Nylon recycling.
More recently, Garware launched V2 nets, a sustainable solution to control biofouling with a negligible copper footprint in sediments thus reducing operational costs.
Recycling of V2 netting was recently demonstrated in Norway, showing the sustainability of the netting innovation.
