Processes of wastewater originating astaxanthin binding onto fish scales.
Sorption of natural pigment from shrimp process wastewater to the fish scales.
Both projects aimed towards implementation of technology of the application of a solid waste (fish scales) as a natural adsorbent for a carotenoid pigment (astaxanthin) from the seafood industry wastewater. Under the experimental conditions used, the maximum loading capacity of astaxanthin nto the scales is 360 mg/kg - Technological implementation for Línuhönnun hf, Islandia and Lýsi hf, Iceland.
