This week I have had the opportunity to visit a BSF facility in Ecuador. There are a number of aspects with this facility that I am impressed with ranging from the location (awesome climate year around) to the resources available (various organic waste streams, large aquaculture industry).
Some of the highlights include:
1- Amazing opportunity for sustainable agriculture with a link to BSF
2-Resources of organic waste that can be used for BSF production
3-Community commitment to sustainable agriculture
4-Market for product produced
5-Climate! Climate! Climate! Temperature is amazing.. humidity is perfect.... light:dark cycle cannot be any better.
I am working to introduce industry from Ecuador to researchers at Texas A&M (TAMU) with the hopes of linking them to further develop the BSF, while enhancing TAMU network there.
Here are some photos of my work with BSF in Ecuador along with some of the sites. I hope you enjoy!
