The world is facing unprecedented climate, environmental and supply chain problems that require innovative solutions.
By harnessing the power of the incredible Black Soldier Fly to upcycle organic waste or low value streams, Entoprotech and our partners can have a significant, positive impact on our societies, the economy, and the environment.
|The Problem||The BSF Solution|
|A global protein shortage that is forecast to get worse – the world population is expected to grow by almost 2 billion by the end of 2030, with the UN estimating that food production needs to increase by 70%, requiring us to double the amount of protein produced today||Black Soldier Fly larvae are efficient bio-converters of organic waste, turning them into a completely sustainable, high-quality protein source.|
|An enormous organic waste crisis – if food waste were a country, it would be the third largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions after the US and China||Directing organic waste streams to Black Soldier Fly larvae, instead of landfilling or incinerating, significantly reduces emissions of methane – one of the most powerful and harmful greenhouse gases – and CO2.|
|Damage to our oceans – Fish meal production is harmful to marine life. The vast majority of the world’s fisheries suffer from overfishing.||Replacing fishmeal with high-quality insect meal, made from Black Soldier Fly larvae raised on organic waste, ensures the continuity of the fishing industry while preventing damage to the hydrosphere.|
The BSF is a new agricultural animal well suited for large-scale cultivation. BSF farming requires significantly less water and land compared to other (animal- and plant-based) protein production methods.
This means that there is virtually no upper limit to the BSF solution – with the right partners, Entoprotech can build organic waste upcycling facilities anywhere around the world, providing local solutions that help solve critical global issues.
