Using insects for organic waste processing and animal feed production

Pitch

We breed black soldier fly larvae, a tropical insect that feed voraciously on organic waste (all sorts – vegetables, fruits, manures, faeces, etc.) and result in inter alia a high protein content product (the larvaes). This is not only for the treatment of all organic waste in surplus but also to thereafter provide adequate feed for poultry or aquaculture. We currently work on several medium-scale prototypes in both The Netherlands (Wageningen University) and West Africa.
