I have seen it done using lengths of threaded rod glued into the wall, but with the depth you have, a steel tube might be better. The lighter you can make those shelves the better, ie. torsion box (hollow) construction. If you are going the rod or tube route, bore oversize in the wall and fill it with a building adhesive like Tec7 or Gripfill, insert the rod or tube and support them while the adhesive is drying. Best make a template for hole location for wall and back of shelf. If you use a threaded rod go at least 12mm.
