BSF larvae efficiently convert 95% of organic waste into chemically complex fats and proteins. Using our novel post-processing technology, we refine these compounds into three high-value products – organic fertilizer/bio-pesticide, high-protein animal feed and biodiesel – in a cheap, scalable and sustainable manner.
Entomics Biosystems, a startup that has been supported by the Cambridge Judge Entrepreneurship Centre’s Accelerate Cambridge programme, announced that it is part of a research collaboration awarded almost £900,000 by Innovate UK to investigate the effectiveness of insect-derived feeds for farmed salmon.
