Waste Not, Want Not

Waste Not, Want Not | Insect rearers | Scoop.it

Indonesia faces a massive waste management problem, with nearly 60 percent of all garbage produced being organic in nature. In addition, the archipelago is the world's second-largest food waster after Saudi Arabia, throwing away nearly 300 kilograms of food per person each year, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit..

However, a local startup has found a sustainable solution to the problem by using biotechnology to turn this garbage into valuable commodities.

Following observations and research on black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens), Biomagg founder and chief executive Aminudi, 27, discovered that their larvae can break down food waste faster and turn it into compost, while producing fewer odors. In addition, the larvae are a good source of protein for use in animal feed.

Biomagg, established in 2015, opted for the black soldier flies because they do not spread disease and have a short life cycle.

Press: Inagro takes new research spaces for insect breeding into use

Ana C. Day's curator insight, February 12, 3:40 AM

Three years after the start-up of small-scale research into the possibilities of professional insect breeding, the culture is being pumped at Inagro. On January 30, the practice center officially put its new breeding cells into use. Some 170 stakeholders from the sector gathered in Beitem to discover the novelties. Thanks to the modern infrastructure, the research can grow to an adult stage in a professional breeding environment. This focuses on the automation and use of waste flows.

Using opportunities with insects 
The possibilities with insects are numerous and are still increasing. The little creatures are great waste processors. In addition, they contain high-quality proteins, fats and minerals, which can form a sustainable alternative to human food and animal feed. Industrial oils can also be extracted from industrial separation processes.

The Blue Shift - Splash -

For many years people think and write about salmon produced without the need for fishmeal. Now it's here, grown on natural and circular proteins made from insects. Salmon and other fish eat insects in nature and it makes them healthy and tasty. Protix has developed the ProteinX ingredient and together with our partners we have developed a well balanced feed that entirely replaced the fishmeal. We call it the 'Friendly Salmon' and it enables the "Blue Shift" towards a sustainable future in aquaculture. Come to our event to enjoy the stories behind this journey and taste the greatness of this grand friendly fish.
