Ensiling as a method for storage and processing of black soldier fly larvae for use as animal feed

The Project aims at investigating the possibilities for storage and treatment of larvae from the black Soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) for use as animal feed. The larvae can grow on organic waste and thus be used as a tool for industry recovery and waste management. Growing larvae for feed production is tested in pilot scale but there is no knowledge of storage and conversion to feed. A sustainability analysis of different storage and processing techniques will be carried out in this project in order to propose sustainable and useful solutions.
