THE BIG PICTURE
Two of the world's biggest needs involving food resources are directly impacted by Insecticycle's technology.
carbon dioxide + methane
disposal of inventory
foul odors + attracts pests
extra energy + resources required to meet demand
food waste leads to contamination of recyclable materials
potential for harmful bacteria, virus, mold and fungi
50% increase in animal feed by 2050
Insect protein is cheaper to produce than similar feed ingredients
Natural diet of many animals contains insects
Inputs available locally for reduced transportation
Food grade process is FDA and USDA approved
Feed trials show normal growth rates
NATURAL SOLUTIONS FOR THE HUMAN WORLD
INSECTS ON A MISSION
We believe that nature is both an inspiration and a solution to solving some of the worlds biggest problems. Black soldier fly larvae are some of natures fastest eaters where they break down and digest a huge variety of organic material. This gives the insect a double role in the food chain as a powerful recycler and nutrition source for other animals. Now, we are working to harness the power of this insect for improving our recycling and food systems in the human world.
Producing insects requires a unique combination of skills ranging from engineering to entomology. Our team has taken a close look into the life cycle of the black soldier fly for a better understanding of the insect's natural abilities. This has enabled us to create an automated processing system that is highly efficient and easy to operate. This state of the art approach opens the door for new applications of the technology to become possible.
SUSTAINABILITY AT ITS CORE
A key component of many sustainable technologies is that they mimic examples found in nature. By ensuring that our system focuses on the function of the black soldier fly, we know our business operates on the same sustainable principles. Waste goes in and food comes out; we believe this is a universal formula for success.
