Alfa Laval provides to aquaculture portfolio

Frugal has acquired LiftUP, a Norwegian supplier of waste extraction techniques for fish farms.

“This acquisition is a valuable addition to our sustainable aquaculture portfolio, expanding our offering of fish farming options that will increase each the productiveness and economic attractiveness of fish farming solutions while lowering its impact on the setting,” stated Sameer Kalra, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Division.
