Our STC-System designs can remediate any of the following locations such as;
Additional Benefits in using STC-Systems to remediate this eutrophic stream include the following;
If remediation designs require large STC-Systems requiring millions of gallons per day and have no space limitations; then greenhouses, buildings or floating structures called Pods can be used. Over the years we have found that most parties interested in our STC-Systems have existing infrastructure and usually do not have space at their site for a greenhouse of any size or an unused building.
So in 2013 we decided to re-design our STC-System greenhouses to a more versatile, compact, and integrated production design called a Modular that can remediate tens of thousands of gallons per day or more. Modulars are Turn-key production models constructed from shipping containers or refrigerated truck trailers that are easily modified to accompany larger tanks & layout to suit a client’s requirement of either one, two, three or four species depending upon the size of the Modular while providing desirable control over ambient conditions.
These self-contained units can be easily placed almost anywhere and integrated into existing infrastructure with space restrictions; or can be used as a stand-alone system in freshwater, estuaries, bays, lagoons, marinas; or any environment that may have nutrient loading that enhances eutrophic conditions.
We officially introduced our SSTC-System - greenhouse on our (this) website in July of 2012, on March 15th 2013 we were acknowledged at Washington Fish Growers Association website; www.wfga.net expressing interest in this technology. This link can be found at http://www.wfga.net/news/sea-plants-solutions-us .
In July of 2013, our Modular SSTC-System was one of nine selected out of thousands of international participants who submitted their “new aquaculture green technology” to the 2013 Bio Marine International Entrepreneur Contest held in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The SSTC-System has been re-named since then and is now referred to as a STC-Sytem (Synergistic Tumble Culture -System).
Turn-Key Modular STC-Systems
Turn-Key Modular STC-Systems Come in Four Modular Sizes (although other size variations are possible) such as;
Which Species Can be Grown in These Systems
There are numerous species of seaweed that can be grown in our STC-Systems but so far we have grown the following;
Ogo (Garcilaria spp) Photo Top Row Far Left. Red Spaghetti (Sarcodethecia spp) Photo Top Row, Second From Far Left. Turkish Towel (Chondracanthus exasperatus) Photo Top Row, Middle. Sugar Kelp (Laminaria saccharina) Top Row, Second From Right & Far Right. String Sea Lettuce (Ulva spp) Just 2-Plants Growing 3"/day 7' - 9' Long Photo right.
