On April 7, there will be a new lecture in the popular series Worth knowing. Then researcher Cecilia Lalander will give a lecture on a waste management method that follows the principles of a circular economy through fly larval composting.
It is a method that follows the principles of a circular economy is fly larval composting, where fly larvae convert biodegradable waste into their own biomass and a compost fraction. The larval biomass can then be used in animal feed while the compost can be spread as an organic fertilizer.
Can waste become food? Yes, with the help of insects.
