Global experiences on waste processing with black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens): From technology to business

Abstract [en]

The black soldier fly (BSF) can cope with a wide range of environmental conditions and the adult fly is not a vector of disease. BSF larvae can consume different organic materials, including various organic wastes generated in large volumes within urban areas. By doing so, they reduce waste volume, grow into a protein-rich biomass and leave behind a nutrient-rich residue. The harvested larvae can then be used in formulating feed for monogastric animals such as poultry, fish and pigs. Given their high fat content, they may also be processed into high quality biodiesel. The waste residue could constitute a valuable soil conditioner. Therefore, the BSF-based technology is viewed as one of the most promising technologies for organic waste processing.
