Post Emerging Entotechnologies
From 'SCIENCE MATTERS: Save the planet; eat an insect' By David Suzuki
https://www.thecoast.ca/halifax/science ... d=12522098

Emerging entotechnologies (from the Greek root entomo, for “insects”) bring together applications that focus on what insects do best. For example, organic residues can be fed to fly larvae, which can then be used as livestock feed. Black soldier fly larvae have voracious appetites for fruit and vegetable residues and could help improve the way we handle this high-quality organic waste. It’s a way to give a second life to stale food, rather than sending it to compost bins or biogas plants. Considering nearly 45 percent of fruit and vegetables produced worldwide is wasted, this is not a fringe idea.
