entosiast’s aim is to inform about the potential of insects in various sectors of society.
Diverse species of insects such as black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens), mealworms (Tenebrio molitor), crickets (Acheta domesticus), honey bees (Apis mellifera) as well as bumble bees (Bombus terrestris) are capable to play an essential role in the future of society. They may, inter alia,
All around the world researchers and innovators are dedicated to find and develop sustainable solutions to the global challenges of the future. The world population is predicted to grow to approximately 9.5 billion people by 2050. As a result, the demand for raw materials will increase and cultivable land will continue to spread, while natural habitats dwindle. For this reason alternative concepts are needed to guarantee the food supply for the world‘s population and to conserve fossil resources.
Compared to livestock and poultry, insects require proportionally less water, less food and less space to generate valuable biomass. Insect farming produces fewer greenhouse gases and thus offers an environmentally friendly alternative to farming livestock. Insects may contribute to a circular economy by transforming agricultural residues and by-products of the food industry into valuable nutrients.
Against this background, entosiast with its products and services intends
