Net Zero AquaLife San Diego plans to produce the highest grade shrimp organically, in a controlled, closed-loop and environmentally-friendly U.S. facility. By combining a patented intensive production raceway system with proven sustainable technologies, Net Zero AquaLife will consistently produce organic shrimp of superior quality and quantity at a low cost of production. According to the company’s Return on Change campaign, “The project facility and systems are scalable, replicable, and due to their closed loop configuration. The ‘carbon neutral’ cluster model is self sustained from an energy and water consumption perspective and all waste is recycled.” The company has also listed a campaign on Crowdfunder. To date, neither financial details nor investor information has been disclosed to non-investors.
Net Zero Enterprises’ group of companies covers the entire investment cycle for Renewable Energy Projects: from initial investment, to the establishment of the asset, with the focus on renewable energy ensuring a Net Zero systemized solution. Net Zero Enterprises and its portfolio dates back to 1943 when its energy efficient Net Zero Thermal Block material was invented in Sweden. Over the years the Net Zero Solution has evolved and now encompasses optimized energy solutions for renewable energy clusters, Biofuel plants and land development with the ultimate goal of building them carbon neutral (or carbon negative) and self sustainable, in other words, Net Zero.
Honing in on aquaculture and organic food production in its Return on Change campaign, Net Zero reveals some staggering if not unfamiliar statistics: the U.S. imports over 91% of its seafood. Over 91%! The crowd can help bring back U.S. shrimp boils; hopefully other seafoods will follow Net Zero’s school of thought. The company cites that half of these imports originate from outdoor aquaculture “farming” programs in Asia and Latin America that may cause readers to lose their appetites: “Unknown to the consumer, these imported products, as well as the main portion of the U.S.-based shrimp, are susceptible to disease, contamination, pollution, pharmaceutical substances, and a host of other impediments to food safety. In addition, many of the antiquated shrimp farming and marine harvesting approaches degrade the fragile coastal environment in which they are located. Developed and developing markets around the globe will benefit from finding a means to source reliable, organic, and sustainable seafood.”
