Proof of concept insect breeding
In the proof of concept, the feasibility of an efficient horticultural waste-to-nutrient solution is tested in a small scale production facility. Black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) will recycle and transform existing local organic waste streams into a high quality natural protein. The results of the proof of concept will be used after the project period for designing, building and operating a full scale commercial insect farm.
This activity will start end 2018.
