The Solution

A biotechnology company leading a project to build the UK’s first large-scale insect farm, raising black soldier flies fed on food waste to create sustainable protein for animal feed. The new facility will process 33,000 tonnes of food waste per year

Case Study

Like humans, animals need protein in order to grow. However, the production and sourcing of the protein that livestock are fed is creating habitat-loss and dead zones in the sea. By enabling widespread adoption of insect protein as a sustainable alternative to soy and fishmeal, Entocycle is helping feed the earth’s animals without destroying the natural world.

Entocycle uses technology to convert waste organic matter into protein by means of insects. The company’s modular, environmentally controlled, and automated indoor system allows farmers to create sustainable insect protein from organic waste.
