Explanation of an industrial application of black soldier fly converting food waste into valuable products
This is the second industrial project demonstration, to review the first demo, please use the link: what-we-do-in-china-teamwork-through-evo-jmgreen.html
This facility practices one time feeding, where the bioconversion rack only receives one time of feed at the beginning and will be sit in the bioconversion room for the remaining time. During the bioconversion period, many heat and ammonia are being generated, thereafter the central air conditioning system along with small air circulation units, and ammonia scrubber are necessary.
The sifting system is comprised with a vacuum transporter and a frass separator. The vacuum transporter moves the larvae and frass content from the bioconversion pan into the storage vessel, then being elevated into the frass separator.
This facility at its full capacity produces 1300KG dried product a day.

Great post, thanks for sharing.

You are right, that prevents larvae from escaping

It is probably wheat bran. It is very dry and absorbs excess moisture and becomes feed as well. Soldier Fly Larvae find dry environments to be hostile and avoid them. So the barrier provides a twofold purpose, Absorbing excess water to prevent larvae drowning and to prevent larvae escape by killing by desiccation or providing a hostile environment they will actively avoid.

Very creative thought process using the fermentation process to kill pathogens and stabilize at the same time. What do you do with the offtake from the ammonia scrubber?
2/14/2019 06:25:01 pm
We are still looking into opportunities for the scrubber offtake, though looks like using it as agricultural fertilizer is the easiest way.

There is the NH3 ammonia as fuel effort in the US of A. Their idea is to take stranded electric and make a liquid fuel of Ammonia.

Incredible engineering work.

Our fermentation process inhibits the rotting and uncontrolled molding, and in this feeding system we want to keep the undigested feed at anaerobic condition to prevent molding. Our pan also help preventing these problems

we read the large pans recieve one feeding and larves are harvested on the 8th day. can we get to know how much kgs of feed is put in per large pan ?

Amazing. Can you help me to contact company build automatic feeding tower . I want to know something about that. Thank you so much

I am interested about this matchine setup. I am planning to produce 500 kg lerve per day.Could you please give me any idea about the match set up? Thanking you.

Amazing post, thanks for writing it. One question, you say the plant produces 1300KG of dried larvae per day, but at the beginning of the post you write the plan is treating 100 Tonnes per day of organic waste. I thought you’d get much more dried larvae from 100 Tonnes, maybe I am missing something, could you help me understand, thanks.

Hi Alessio, thanks for your comment. The site collects 100 tons a day, though 80% of them are free flowing liquid, and those are sent to biogas reactor. Hope this helps.

What strains of probiotics is to promote fermentation, and do you culture these as a part of the production cycle?

Hello. Please tell me how much does such equipment cost? Is it possible to buy it?

How much is the larvae feed being sold?
11/20/2020 03:32:21 pm
The truth it's inspiring. Currently am in Uganda and am trying to set up facility that can supply my poultry farm. I had reached a level of collecting 210g of eggs in a week but just because we are in the rainy season, am getting 50g a week.

Congratulations for your excellent blog. A couple of simple questions: what is the average weight of fresh harvested larvae? and what is that of the dried larvae?
3/25/2021 03:42:26 am
I would like to find out is there other methods other than trays to bioconvert
9/3/2021 10:44:08 am
Hi ! Can you tell me which type of probiotics are you using for fermentation ? can you sell it ?

Your article is fascinating. , you have enriched your craft delightfully. It rouses individuals a ton. In the event that the subject is acceptable, at that point it is likewise enjoyable to peruse and this is the thing that individuals need these days, your post is truly intriguing. Enlivened by you, I also figure I ought to compose an article on a great subject.

Water security has become a deep concern across Australia, as a result of inadequate dams, expanding population, and the effects of global warming, culminating in frequent catastrophic droughts.

I am interested in the machines though for processing 1-2 tonnes of waste daily please advise
