New intern working on fly larvae composting

Meet Panav Gupta – the group’s latest intern from India who is currently working with the black solider fly team. During his bachelors program in civil engineering, Panav was very interested in the field of waste management, especially the potential and economic outlook of using Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) for treating various types of waste. He is visiting our group at SLU for a two month long internship that began this July. During this time, he will learn about rearing and using BSFL for treating mussels and pig feed as well as understand the prospects of using BSFL for treating lignocellulosic biomass like rice straw – a possible solution for the problem of stubble burning  in North India.PC: Giulio Zorzetto
