Waste valorisation
Benefit
Research and innovation

Insect biomass conversion (or insect farming) is an emerging practice, where waste is fed directly to insects. These in turn convert low value biomass into higher value insect mass, rich in proteins, fats and chitin. These can in turn be used as sustainable inputs for a variety of sectors, most notably high quality animal feeds demanded by the aquaculture sector & premium pet food markets.

Information

Professor Montse Jorba coordinated the NOSHAN project where researchers from seven European countries investigated turning fruit, vegetable, cereal and dairy waste into pork and poultry feed. They found that the most nutrient-rich sources of waste came from pumpkins, rapeseed, cheese and yoghurt production, barley, mushrooms and olives. This could help to reduce the environmental impact of livestock farming. Read this article to find out more.
