1. Consulting

In a first step, we aim to familiarize ourselves with you and your specific project idea whilst also introducing our system and working processes. The result of this basic evaluation is to develop a feel for your project and estimate the economic feasibility.

2. Planning

Every project starts with the development of a business case, which calculates the foreseeable project-related investment costs, operating costs and the income statement.

The resulting calculations offer a frame and basis to drive decisions on funding and the implementation of your project.

3. Construction

ECF Farm System is the primary and leading contractor in delivering your turnkey farm. We provide support and guidance in all relevant approval procedures that are necessary to build and operate your farm.

In addition, we help you find the right people and prepare them specifically for your future needs, through our flagship ECF Farm in Berlin.

ECF Aquaponic Farms

Aquaponics = AQUAculture (fish farming) + HydroPONICS (growing vegetables).

ECF Aquaponics Method

In ECF aquaponic farming systems, the process of both rearing fish and growing vegetables operate as a fully integrated and complementary system. Through this course of producing high-quality fish, water is enriched with valuable nutrients that are then passed into the greenhouse, providing the plants with natural minerals and fertilizer. The combined processes of; controlled nutrient fluxes and CO2 exchange, rainwater and waste heat recovery, in- house fertilizer production and partnered with the optional use of photovoltaic in heat and electricity production, lead to an ecological and economic balance.

Innovative Technology

Each ECF Farm System is equipped with components optimally tailored to the specific project type. These components include; moving-bed reactors, automated drum-filter, vegetation heating, assimilation lighting, drip irrigation, ebb and flow systems, shading & energy screens, central computer technology with remote maintenance and alarm signaling devices. ECF Farm Systems are continually being developed in conjunction with experienced partners and leading experts.

Sustainable Business Model

ECF farm systems can be modularly scaled from 1.000m2 to any size. The farms can be built on roofs and vacant land within both urban and in the rural localities.

Inventory greenhouses and aquaculture can be converted into ECF farm systems. Investing in a farm ECF system is an investment in two growth markets: Aquaculture and Hydroponic systems which record an increase of 8% annually, driven by increasing demand for ecologically meaningful and regionally produced food.
