The main aim of the project is to use mechanical vapour recompression for the concentration of fish stickwater, thereby rendering the process economic and using a by-product, a large volume of which is being dumped. This novel technological approach will make maximum use of the by-product of fishmeal/fish oil manufacture and will lead to improvements in the environment and increased yields from the fishmeal/fish oil plant. The MVR technology using turbo fans is a new application with fish waste in the EEC. The use of the turbo fans demands less electrical power and is easier to maintain. This application will benefit the competitiveness of the fish processing industry of the Community.
