Using black soldier flies to convert food waste into a variety of advanced products

Entoprotech is an Israeli biotech company that uses black soldier flies to decompose organic waste into advanced products. While these flies are very common, they can decompose almost any organic material and are one of the most efficient biomass converters. The waste that the fly larvae break down fuels and enrich them with high-quality fat and protein, ideal for animal feed as well as medicinal and cosmetic products. Harnessing the potential of these flies, Entoprotech can recycle nutrients back into the food chain and divert CO2 emitting food waste from the landfill. Learn about the environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and efficient ways of managing waste treatment and protein shortages.
