Organic waste recycled by fly larvae

0

FLY LARVAE could be the answer to recycling organic waste at the Terra Natura animal park in Benidorm. They hope to recycle animal faeces and vegetable waste into quality bio-diesel and chemicals used in the pharmaceutical industry. For the past year-and-a-half they have been studying this possibility together with the company Flysoil and technicians at Alicante University (UA).

The ‘Hermetia Illucens’ – black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) – food of choice is decomposing matter. The plant at Benidorm Zoo – and the only one in Spain – has a capacity for 20million BSFL, which can digest a ton of waste per day.

The larvae are later used as chicken and fish feed.
