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
