Article
Sound manure management plans enable limitation of manure accumulation, potential detrimental effects, and environmental pollution. Black soldier fly larvae play an important role in organic waste management for achieving a circular economy, sustainable development, and eco-friendly technology in developing countries. The present study evaluated th...
Article
Microalgae are considered promising sustainable sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and those in the genus Schizochytrium are among the most frequently used ingredients in aquaculture feeds. Industrialized Schizochytrium production creates considerable amounts of waste material, the residual fatty acid (FA) content of which could be hig...

The scarcity of water is one of the main issues in Egypt. In particular, the extreme climate in the form of less frequent rainfall affects the groundwater availability. Moreover, groundwater has been depleted by the increase in population. In this research, the spatial distribution of groundwater salinity has been developed, and the prediction of g...

At present, organic waste management by insects is being practiced to produce insect biomass to combat food deficiency challenges and reduce the huge amount of waste. Black soldier fly (BSF) larvae are used to reduce and reutilise organic wastes to decrease animal feeding costs. This study examined the conversion efficiency of olive pomace residue...
Article
In recent years, monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), especially palmitoleic acid (omega-7, POA) and oleic acid (omega-9, OA), have gained increasing notoriety; however, traditional sources of MUFAs have not achieved sustainability. Black soldier fly (BSF) larvae can convert low-quality products into high-quality biomass to be used in many industri...
Thesis
Since the suitability of BSFL as animal feed depends on the nutritional composition of their rearing substrate and it is possible to modify the nutrient composition of BSFL by adjusting their rearing substrate. Five experiments were conducted and the main conclusion is listed below: 1.Using 50% Schizochytrium microalgae residue as the substrate inc...
Article
Waste disposal and utilisation of its important components are pioneering goals for achieving sustainable development and a clean environment. Silkworm pupae (SWP) are considered a by-product of the seri-culture industry and may contain a high concentration of selenium (Se) in some regions, making them a potentially hazardous waste posing health ri...
