LEP backs Cambs food waste business (link)

"Entomics Biosystems plans to convert food waste into three sustainable fuels for plans, animals and vehicles. It also wants to reduce the amount of food going into landfills.

To achieve this, the business plans to use the Black Soldier Fly, which has the ability to efficiently convert organic waste into fats and proteins inside their bodies. These compounds can then be refined into three high value products – animal feed, biodiesel and organic fertiliser."

It is amazing that all this can be achieved with food waste and an insect

£900k for start-up using insects to feed salmon
http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/busines ... s-13431051

"Insect protein could be used to feed salmon after a Cambridge company was awarded a £900,000 government grant to further its work.

Entomics Biosystems will work with the University of Stirling and the University of Reading to investigate the effectiveness of insect-derived feeds for farmed salmon. Entomics and its partners will conduct industrial research to improve and optimise the company's existing bioprocessing platform."

Maggots and rotting food waste—a new recipe for sustainable fish and animal feed July 31, 2018, University of Cambridge
https://phys.org/news/2018-07-maggots-f ... nable.html

Excerpt:
In a warehouse to the northeast of Cambridge are shelves upon shelves of trays teeming with maggots, munching their way through a meal of rotting fruit and vegetables. This may sound stomach-churning, but these insects could become the sustainable food of the future – at least for fish and animals – helping reduce the reliance on resource intensive proteins such as fishmeal and soy, while also mitigating the use of antibiotics in the food chain, one of the causes of the increase in drug-resistant bacteria.

The company behind this idea is Entomics Biosystems. It was set up in 2015 by a group of students from the University of Cambridge, with support from the Cambridge Judge Entrepreneurship Centre's Accelerate Cambridge programme.
