About

  • Entoprotech is a circular economy company engaged in organic/food waste treatment and processing. We are harnessing unique qualities of insects, particularly of BSF (Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens)) in order to convert food waste into variety of advanced products
  • We are making money while contributing to resolution of such pressing problems like greenhouse gas emissions, lack of land for landfilling, high environmental footprint of protein production, shortage in protein for animal farming and others
  • Entoprotech is a hands-on player, with the roots deep in food industry and large-scale farming and protein production. We are on a forefront of the technology in cleantech and agritech, using best of Israeli tech developed inhouse and by our strategic partners in genetics , biochemistry and animal feed fields
  • Headquartered in Israel, Entoprotech has R&D activity in Israel and Russia and production facility processing 15 tons of organic waste daily
  • Two manufacturing facilities with capacities of 50 tons/day and 100 tons/day are in planning and construction phases
  • Among our products are defatted insect meal (high protein replacement of fishmeal), high quality insect fat that is currently used as feed and has many potential uses in cosmetics and pharma, frass (leftovers of larvae metabolic activity) which is high quality fertiliser
  • We are constantly looking for new partners and additional exciting usages for the products produced while treating food waste

FOOD WASTE IS A GLOBAL PROBLEM

  • Food loss and food waste is the decrease of food volume intended for human consumption in all stages of the food supply chain, from harvesting down to consumption, regardless of the reasons.
  • 1.6 billion tons of food losses and waste that are formed in the world annually
  • Most of the food waste finds its way into landfills and produces methane, which is 25 times more potent greenhouse gas than the CO2.

UPCOMING PROTEIN DEFICIT

  • Protein consumption is on the rise globally due to the population growth and dramatic changes in consumption.
  • Insects protein consumption has two main applications: feed for domestic animals and human consumption.
It is estimated that the global population will reach 9.6 billion by 205
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that food production will need to increase by 70%

SOLUTION - BLACK SOLDIER FLY

Hermetia illucens

  • BSF larvae is a ferocious eater of everything organic
  • Daily converting organic waste double of its weight into high quality protein and fat
  • No water used in the process
  • No pest –adult fly does not feed
  • Harmless for humans
  • Great candidate for large scale cultivation
  • Highly resilient

俄罗斯国家“生态”项目:垃圾上的创新经济

01.08.2020
sputniknews.cn
俄罗斯仅在几年前才开始关注垃圾问题,可以说,距无垃圾经济的目标尚远。在世界最为广袤的国家领土上,数十年里,垃圾一直存放在城市周边的堆场。这是最无效、最污染环境、最廉价的垃圾处理方式。与此同时,俄罗斯的食品和其它商品消费量越来越多,垃圾场在快速增长,甲烷废气污染着空气,废水污染着土壤和自然水体。据悉,仅有5%的生活垃圾进入二次加工企业。 2016年,俄罗斯开始征收生态费,情况从此发生了变化。国家强制要求厂家和进口商,在商品失去消费功能后,或独立加工,或支付再加工费进行处理。结果马上显现出来。目前,二次原料转化率已经不是从前的5%,国内每年形成的7000万吨垃圾中,已有14%的转化率。在国家“生态”项目框架下,又部署了更富野心的任务:到2024年,垃圾再加工量应增加到60%。换句话说,14年后,俄罗斯计划加工一半的生活垃圾。这样,俄罗斯可达到奥地利和德国的水平,在该指数方面,进入前十之列。实现如此崇高目标,仅要求垃圾分类和建设生态安全焚烧厂是不够的。在“绿色俄罗斯”规划中,有机和食品垃圾再加工创新技术,作用巨大。
