The Aquaponics Case-Circular By Design
The R2Pi project team is working closely with an advanced and innovative aquaponics start-up, to analyse how the business model and production process are oriented to improve circularity in the food sector. With this aquaponics case study, we are investigating the business models of a promising new area of technology based on biological processes in the progression of circular thinking and design, as well as uncovering corresponding challenges; e.g. Aquaponics businesses operate in a vague policy environment for both aquaculture and agriculture separately, rather than one that has been designed for aquaponics, resulting in a web of bureaucracy that must be disentangled.
