ENTOMICS BIOSYSTEMS LTD
Entomics ‘closes the food waste loop’ by transforming organic waste into sustainable agricultural inputs, using an insect called the Black Soldier Fly (BSF) as a conversion catalyst.
BSF larvae efficiently convert 95% of organic waste into complex fats and proteins in their bodies. Leveraging our novel post-processing technology, we refine these compounds into aquaculture feed and organic fertilizer in a cheap, scalable and sustainable manner.
Overall, this is an innovative way of turning waste material into a set of valuable, sustainable resources.
Partner in the following EIT Food projects
Insect larvae will be reared on food side streams, allowing the valorization of secondary raw materials produced in excess from food industries, and then used as environmental enrichments in laying hens and broilers
Metamorphosis will build on foundational work performed in Year 1 in regards to conversion of organic waste streams into valuable, next generation functional aquaculture feeds, utilising insect biomass conversion and proprietary bioprocessing
