  1. 1. Insekter – ett resurseffektivt hundfoder?

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Jannica Helmersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Hermetia illucens; amerikansk vapenfluga; amerikansk soldatfluga; black soldier fly; insekter; hundfoder; proteinfodermedel; resurseffektivitet;

    Abstract : En ökande hundpopulation ökar även behovet av att finna nya födokällor för produktion av hundfoder. En tredjedel av den mat som produceras till humankonsumtion slängs. För att öka den cirkulära biobaserade ekonomin kan insekter uppväxta på olika restströmmar användas som råvara i foder. READ MORE

  2. 2. Baltic blue mussel (Mytilus edulis L.) and black soldier fly (Hermetia. illucens) combined with pea protein concentrate as protein sources in feed for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Xiaoqing Cui; [2019]
    Keywords : aquaculture; rainbow trout; Baltic blue mussel; black solider fly larvae; digestibility; protein; fishmeal replacement;

    Abstract : A feeding trial was conducted for 9 weeks to test the growth performance, nutrient retention and digestibility in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in order to assess the potential of Baltic blue mussel meal (Mytilus edulis L) and black solider fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) meal as protein sources. The dietary treatments consisted of one control diet based on high quality fishmeal, one control diet based on pea protein concentrate for testing dietary palatability and two fishmeal-free experimental diets where approximately 20% of the crude protein from the fishmeal was replaced with the protein from either de-shelled blue mussel meal or larvae meal on a dry matter basis.

  3. 3. Impact of fly specific bacteria on fly larvae composting

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Kristina Lundgren; [2019]
    Keywords : Fly larvae composting; Black soldier fly; Hermetia illuciens; BSF bacteria; Organic waste; Nutrient recycling; Eco-technology; Fluglarvskompostering; Amerikansk vapenfluga; Hermetia Illuciens; BSF bakterier; Organiskt avfall; Näringsåterföring; Grön teknik;

    Abstract : About one third of all edible food is wasted globally each year. This calls for improvements in resource and waste management. An interesting solution for organic waste is fly larvae composting, which both produces protein in the form of larvae and a nutrient rich residue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Insekter som råvara i kattfoder

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Eva Wennman; [2019]
    Keywords : cat; feline; food; nutrition; black soldier fly; insect; sustainable development; resource efficiency; bioconversation;

    Abstract : Katten är Sveriges vanligaste sällskapsdjur och det finns över en miljon katter i landet vilket medför en stor efterfrågan på kattfoder. Katten är en strikt karnivor och dess näringsbehov skiljer sig jämfört med de flesta sällskapsdjur då animaliskt protein utgör en viktig del av kattens diet. READ MORE

  5. 5. Valorising Organic Waste using the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens), in Ghana

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Gabrielle Joly; [2018]
    Keywords : Review; case studies; food waste; faecal sludge; co-digestion; low-tech system; cost-benefit analysis CBA ; Etat de l’art; études de cas; déchets alimentaires; boues de vidange; co-traitement; système low-tech; analyse coûts-bénéfices; Granskning; fallstudier; livsmedelsavfall; fekalslam; sambehandling; lågteknologiskt system; kostnads-nyttoanalys;

    Abstract : Ghana as a rapidly growing and urbanizing middle-income country is facing a number of challenges, including (1) implementing a sanitary, environmental-friendly, and economically-sound waste management system; (2) increasing its agricultural productivity in a sustainable way to meet the growing domestic food demand; and (3) providing livelihood opportunities in both rural and urban areas. Using the black soldier fly (BSF), a particularly beneficial insect, to locally and cost-effectively valorise abundant, high-impacting, and nutrient rich organic waste streams, such as food waste (FW) and faecal sludge (FS), into affordable and sustainable farming inputs like organic fertilizer and animal feed products, could tackle all these challenges at the same time.
