Renewable energy and biogas production
In 2020 the Benchmark’s SalmoBreed Salten site in Norway was recognized for its energy efficiency by Kystmiljø. The site, which officially opened in May 2019, can produce 150m salmon eggs yearly and was designed with sustainability credentials at its core.
The purpose-built site minimizes its environmental footprint by using 100% renewable energy as well as sending fish and sludge waste for biodigestion. In 2019 biodigestion of waste generated 212,2kWh, thereby saving the equivalent to over 17t of fossil fuels of waste.
