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

CARBON EMISSIONS

food waste produces greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide and methane

MONETARY LOSS

spoilage and breakage result in lost inventory

UNAPPEALING

food waste creates foul odors and attracts pests

INEFFIENCY

More resources are consumed than necessary

LESS OVERALL RECYCLING

food waste contaminates other recyclable materials when waste streams are combined

BIOHAZARD

potential for spreading harmful bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi

INSECT PROTEIN

GLOBAL DEMAND

50% increase in animal feed use by 2050

COST EFFECTIVE

Insect protein is cheaper to produce than comparable feed ingredients

ROBUST NUTRITION

Insects are a natural diet for many animals

LOCALLY SOURCED

Lower food miles and transportation costs

SAFE AND HEALTHY

Insect rearing process and products are regulated by FDA and USDA

HIGH PERFORMANCE

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.

TECHNOLOGY FORWARD

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.
