Profile

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.

Projects

We are very interested in collaborating with other organisations involved in the food industry who share a similar vision around the Circular Economy. We are particularly focused on developing partnerships in the following areas: Waste feedstock assessment & analysis; Prototype system design and deployment; Nutritional analysis & benchmarking; Food safety assessments & pathogen testing; Plant trials; Fish trials; Market sizing & supply chain analysis; Regulatory approval, licensing & planning assessments.

Competences & Capabilities

Our main competencies and capabilities are in the following areas:

  • Organic waste conversion trials
  • Insect protein / oil feed preparations & formulations
  • Biological conditions experimentation & optimization
  • Engineering design & operation for insectrearing at large scale
  • Organic fertilizer preparations and trials
  • Supply chain & logistics model optimization

We have a strong team of biologists and engineers that take a flexible and pragmatic approach to problem solving for a range of customer contexts in the food and feed sector.

FROM WASTE TO FARM: insect larvae as tool for welfare improvement in poultry

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 – enhanced insect protein for aquaculture

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
