THE BIG PICTURE
Two of our biggest global problems involving food and ag systems are directly impacted by Insecticycle's technology - food waste and animal feed
food waste produces greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide and methane
spoilage and breakage result in lost inventory
food waste creates foul odors and attracts pests
More resources are consumed than necessary
LESS OVERALL RECYCLING
food waste contaminates other recyclable materials when waste streams are combined
potential for spreading harmful bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi
50% increase in animal feed use by 2050
Insect protein is cheaper to produce than comparable feed ingredients
Insects are a natural diet for many animals
Lower food miles and transportation costs
SAFE AND HEALTHY
Insect rearing process and products are regulated by FDA and USDA
Feed trials show insect protein supports healthy growth rates
NATURAL SOLUTIONS FOR HUMAN PROBLEMS
INSECTS ON A MISSION
We believe that nature is an inspiration to solving some of the worlds biggest problems. Black soldier fly larvae are unique in the way they break down and digest a huge variety of organic material. This makes the insect a perfect candidate 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.
Rearing insects requires a unique combination of engineering and entomology. Our team has taken an up close look into the life cycle of the black soldier fly for a better understanding of the insect's natural behavior. 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 focusing on the most efficient methods of rearing the black soldier fly, we know our business operates on the same sustainable principles. One man's trash is another's treasure; we believe this is a fundamental formula for success.
