New technology to assist South America’s fish farming industry
DSM Dyneema and Badinotti Group have come together to expand collaboration to advance netting technology.
DSM Dyneema and Badinotti Group have agreed to explore opportunities to assist South America’s fish farming industry with improved netting solutions using Dyneema, the world’s strongest fiber. It is said that the two companies aim to provide new netting solutions that can meet the challenges of today’s industries and end users. One area of focus will be reducing fish escapes in South America’s fish farming industry.
Experts told that the Ultra-strong Dyneema® fiber, which has been used successfully in a variety of net applications, offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio, lower maintenance, and longer service life than conventional synthetics. It is said that in this partnership Badinotti will become an official licensee of DSM Dyneema’s new Commercial Marine Licensing programme.
Alfonso Rizo Patron, CEO, Badinotti Group, informed that Badinotti was one of the first companies to introduce nets made with Dyneema® fiber in 1996, and since that time its relationship with DSM Dyneema has become stronger. He also told that this agreement intends to create netting to meet the challenges of today’s end users.
It is told that the companies will focus on anti-predator and containment netting for South America’s aquaculture industry. Dyneema® fiber’s exceptional strength and toughness produce netting that can significantly reduce escapes and losses from fish or predators biting through the nets.
