CO2 emissions using only the current infrastructure and plant energy resources are estimated that they would reach 466 tCO2 per year. Taking as a starting data the current production of Dorada of 300 t/year, which requires a power supply 933.324 kWh/year, about 933 MWh/year. An increase in production around 2000%, is to reaching about 6000 t/year, estimating the new energy demand around 18,600 MWh/year.
Decrease of the CO2 emitted using renewable energy sources to cover at least 10% of the energy supply of the installation. The installation will avoid 46.6 tCO2/year using this route.
Reduction of the CO2 emitted favouring the correct operation of the plant (implementation of control systems and good operation practices). In this way we would save 20% of energy consumption and 56.6 tCO2/year will be avoided.
Evaluation and fixation of the CO2 emitted in the combustion of gases in the aquaculture plant through the pipeline and supplyinge this CO2 to microalgae tanks. Estimating a production of algae of 2.4 t/year, you will reach 4.32 tCO2/year avoided in this way.
Reduction of emissions increasing the efficiency of the used equipment.
Decrease fossil fuel consumption through replacement the operation of the generator 25% of time (saving electricity 659 MWh/year) and avoiding 17.4 tCO2/year in this way.
Increase efficiency by auto-production in-situ oxygen through a renewable way, assuming on this route a lower emission generation.
