When the world desperately needs a solution to deal with the increasing amount of organic waste generated by human activity, there is yet to be a viable method to handle this material in an environmentally-responsible manner. As composting requires a large land footprint and takes too long (up to nine months) to complete, managing organic waste with black soldier fly larvae is the most promising method to prevent organic waste accumulation at landfills, which damages the planet through greenhouse gas emission, and pollutes soil and water.
The idea of transforming waste with black soldier fly larvae to produce insect biomass as a sustainable animal feed ingredient, and crop fertilizer from the remaining, digested biomass, has been proposed for nearly a half century, but only recently become a reality. Few companies across the globe are practicing this method, but there are hundreds of questions that need to be answered in order to advance this technology.
Founded by the world’s leading research group on black soldier flies, EVO Conversion Systems, LLC is able to investigate and answer the questions with which the industry currently struggles, while benefiting the Earth. Here at EVO, we are dedicated to delivering the latest findings in science and incorporating them into our state-of-the-art processing facilities. Our solutions are practical, safe, honest, and vetted by some of the global black soldier fly experts.
About The EVO Consortium
The Consortium was founded to cover all aspects of the black soldier fly industry, so that the members can have more power and synergy to develop. EVO provides the fundamental technologies to consortium members, and the members of the consortium, who are individuals or companies, develop independently but in a collaborative environment. Each member of the consortium occupies a niche of the industry, and together the consortium pursues bigger goals.
Meet Our Team
We have over 25 years combined experience studying the biology, behavior, and life history of black soldier flies, and managing the production of this insect on an industrial scale for waste management.
