I wanted to post a quick note about a publication that is available now. The book is entitled Waste Biorefinery and it is published by Elsevier.
I along with Dr. Samir Khanal et al at the University of Hawaii (you can check out his lab) have a chapter on insects and biorefineries. You can at minimum read the abstract at their website.
Chapter 22 – Insect-Based Biorefinery for Bioenergy and Bio-Based Products
While energy costs in the USA are fairly low at the moment, these matters change quickly, and we as a society should always be positioned to be more efficient with the resources available to us now. This chapter really demonstrates another benefit of using insects to recycle wastes. They not only have the potential to protect the environment from wastes but also could be utilized to produce bio-energy (e.g., heat or biodiesel). I hope you enjoy it.
