Efficient valuing by insects
They can turn low-quality residual streams into high-quality protein. Insect protein, such as that found in mealworms or the larvae of the black soldier fly, is suitable as a source of protein and fat for aquaculture, feed, pet food and even as food for humans.
It is very well possible to breed insects using co-products from e.g. the food industry. Think of potato steam peels, brewers grains, wheat yeast concentrate and - potentially - low-grade streams such as sludge. The breeding of insects therefore ties in seamlessly with our vision. By optimally adding value to co-products in accordance with the Looop Ladder, we can prevent wastefulness and bring about a sustainable future.
