Black Soldier Fly Biowaste Processing - A Step-by-Step Guide
Abstract and Figures
Recycling organic waste material (biowaste) still remains fairly limited, especially in low- and middle-income settings, although this is by far the largest fraction of all generated municipal waste. This book deals with urban organic municipal waste from households, commercial activities, and institutions. It describes the approach of biowaste conversion by insect larvae, using the example of the Black Solider Fly (BSF), Hermetia illucens. This engineered biosystem consists of feeding segregated biowaste to BSF larvae which have been reared in a nursery. Larvae grow on the waste feedstock and reduce its biomass. At the end of the process, larvae are harvested and, if necessary, post-processed to a suitable animal feed product. This guide has been prepared for practical use, explaining the required materials and equipment, as well as each working step similar to a cookbook with its respective recipes. It includes all information necessary to develop and operate a BSF waste processing facility. The guide highlights the gaps where information is scarce or unavailable and points to further research and development that are required.
