2019 Aqua-Nor Award goes to Scottish company

2019 Aqua-Nor Award goes to Scottish company Benchmark Animal Health’s Carolina Fauna with this year’s Aqua-Nor Award

The Aqua-Nor innovation award jury has selected Benchmark Animal Health as the recipient of the 2019 Innovation Award.

Benchmark Animal Health’s technology for cleaning treatment water after delousing, Clean Treat, won against some heavy competition from other applicants and finalists, according to the jury.

Benchmark’s Head of Nordics, Carolina Faune, said that receiving the 2019 award is an honour and a confirmation that the goals they have set themselves are the right ones.

“Our goal is to help the industry grow in a sustainable way. As a green technology company we believe sustainability is both possible and profitable – not only when using the current medicines on the market, but also when using new ones,” Carolina Faune said.

”It’s been ten years since this project was just an idea – so there’s a lot of hard work behind the final product.”

The jury pointed out that at the last Aqua Nor in 2017, the winner was also a Scottish company, an indicator that Scottish innovation is really making its mark internationally.

Carolina Faune commented that Benchmark feels like a Norwegian-British company.

“Norway is along with other regions a major market for us. CleanTreat has been tested here, and is in use here in Norway as well. CleanTreat is now commercially available, and we expect our first deliveries​ next year.”
