The Final Report Summary of the BSF waste to profit project is now available to download

The Closing the loop: Black Soldier Fly technology to convert agriculture waste project has been exploring the use of Black Soldier Flies to turn livestock wastes into useful products. The Final Report has been approved by the funding body and a summary is now available for project partners and interested members of the public to read.

The 6-page summary report outlines the objectives of the research project and how it aims to support sustainable agriculture. Informed by the research findings of the project, it briefly explains how BSF technology is used to help manage and reduce agricultural waste (manures) and the benefits for industry in terms of effectiveness of the technology and potential for co-products. A short research video to accompany this summary is underway will be released towards the end of the year.
