Our fly larvae team participated in the yearly Matologi event organized by SLU. This year’s exhibition had a focus on waste and climate. Evgheni Ermolaev, Giulio Zorzetto and Panav Gupta presented the Kretsloppsfluga concept being developed by the group and showed the treatment module currently being tested at a pilot plant at Eskilstuna Strängnäs Energi och Miljö AB.
The concept of efficient food waste treatment with added benefits such as the production of valuable products as fly larvae biomass and compost was presented and the benefits and possibilities discussed and attracted many interested among the visitors. The team also presented the nutritional value of fly larvae biomass as source of feed proteins and fats, and of replacing fossil fertilizer with fly larvae compost rich in nitrogen.
The demonstration of treatment module, the life cycle of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens ) and BSF prepupae also attracted many visitors. Read more details in our article “Kan små insekter vara lösningen på stora problem?” at Matologi homepage.
