Innovative RF Drying System Helps Repurpose Lobster Shells
Aethera™ has developed a containerized lobster shell drying system for The Verschuren Centre. This system will allow the centre to derive valuable materials from what is typically considered waste product.
“When properly dried, lobster shells can be used to extract bio-polymers, proteins and mineral compounds that can be used in water treatment, agriculture, food products, nutraceuticals, pharmaceutical products and biomedicine.”
Beth Mason, CEO, The Verschuren Centre
“This system will have the capability to dry several tons of lobster shell per day to the desired moisture content needed for follow-on processes.”

The system will be powered by Athera’s APG7™-50 solid-state generator.
For Aethera™, this is another exciting challenge in our mission to help clients achieve high power for process heating and drying applications while improving energy efficiency.
