  1. 1. Integrating novel circular economy technologies in complex trans-sector value chains : Case study of insect larvae conversion technology within waste and feed value chains

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Audinisa Fadhila; [2020]
    Keywords : Organic waste; circular economy; circular value chain; sustainable transition; transition studies; Black Soldier Fly; sustainable animal feed;

    Abstract : Even as the current linear value chains (LVC) of organic waste and animal feed hold the potential to become circular, these practices continue to pose major environmental risks such as deforestation and overfishing. Therefore, a novel circular value chain (CVC) is proposed, connecting the organic waste stream with animal feed production by the use of insect-based organic waste conversion technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Feeding the 45 million : substituting soybean protein with insect protein within EU poultry and egg production

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Douglas Hunter; [2019]
    Keywords : insects; insect production; livestock feed; entomophagy; land use; futures research; food security; energy security; black soldier fly; mealworm; house cricket; sustainable development;

    Abstract : A global population increasing both in number and in resource consumption per capita has resulted in food, livestock feed and energy crop demands that are increasingly difficult to meet on rapidly degrading soils within a diminishing available area of arable land. With further expansion of agricultural land infeasible and yield increases through further intensification insufficient to meet the scale of predicted crop demand, the use of insects as an animal feed has gained traction as a method of not only reducing competition for arable land, but also some of the detrimental environmental consequences of livestock and conventional feed production.
