Enorm Biofactory—Valorisation of waste biomass by way of insect production (ENORM) (39605)

Project Details


Project "Enorm Biofactory" is a waste valorisation project that will demonstrate how organic waste from agriculture and food industries can be converted into high-value insect meal. This will to take place in Denmark's first-ever, fully-automated, large scale production of Black Solider Flies (BSF). Here, organic waste will be converted into high value fish feed ingredients, and insect manure will be converted into high-value fertilizer. There will throughout the project be focus on production upscaling in consideration of minimizing waste production by establishing and improving internal, circular, process procedures and biomass streams.

The project is coordinated by Danish Aquaculture Organisation and funded by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark by “MUDP; Environmental Technology Development Program”.
