Aquaculture sludge (uneaten feed and faeces) is a growing side stream in Iceland. It can be challenging to handle, and research is needed to further examine its potential. The first step towards utilization is the collection which now often entails a dewatering process including polymer addition. These polymers can pose a potential challenge and limitation when it comes to utilization potentials, so the question becomes, what to do?
