Report ‘Insect Breeding’

Report ‘Insect Breeding’

TheBioBoost partnership has published a report about the lab scale and pilot scale experiments with mealworm and black soldier fly. The report focusses on insects as a promising way of converting horticultural residues into valuable protein, oil and derived products. Three project partners established dedicated insect facilities to find out how to rear one of these species on an industrial scale, their nutritional needs or how to process residues with them. All the research within BioBoost confirms the feasibility of (partial) implementation of horticultural residues as feedstock for the insect industry. Thereby contributing to a circular economy.
