Title
(EN) AQUAPONIC UNIT
(FR) UNITÉ AQUAPONIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention pertains to an agricultural unit (100) comprising: a tank system (110) adapted to provide a combined aquatic environment for raising aquatic animals in aquaculture and cultivating plants in hydroponic culture, whereby excretions of said aquatic animals are released directly into said aquatic environment so as to produce nutrients for said plants; and an electrochemical device (130); wherein said electrochemical device (130) is operable in an electrolysis mode to produce hydrogen and oxygen while consuming electrical energy provided by a source of electrical energy; wherein said electrochemical device is further operable in a fuel cell mode to produce electrical energy and heat by oxidizing said produced hydrogen; and wherein said electrochemical device is operatively coupled to said tank system so as to transfer at least part of said produced heat and said produced oxygen to said aquatic environment. The invention also pertains to use of such a unit.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une unité agricole (100) comprenant : un système de réservoir (110) conçu pour fournir un environnement aquatique combiné pour élever des animaux aquatiques en aquaculture et cultiver des plantes en culture hydroponique, les excrétions desdits animaux aquatiques étant libérées directement dans ledit environnement aquatique de manière à produire des nutriments pour lesdites plantes ; et un dispositif électrochimique (130) ; ledit dispositif électrochimique (130) pouvant fonctionner en mode électrolyse pour produire de l'hydrogène et de l'oxygène tout en consommant de l'énergie électrique fournie par une source d'énergie électrique ; ledit dispositif électrochimique pouvant en outre fonctionner en mode pile à combustible pour produire de l'énergie électrique et de la chaleur par oxydation dudit hydrogène produit ; et ledit dispositif électrochimique étant couplé fonctionnellement audit système de réservoir de manière à transférer au moins une partie de ladite chaleur produite et dudit oxygène produit vers ledit environnement aquatique. L'invention concerne également l'utilisation d'une telle unité.
