THE YEAR 2050

The world population will rise to over 9 billion people. At that time, 465 million tons of protein would have to be produced annually, 60% more than we are already producing today. With conventional protein sources such as animal husbandry at the limit, we will have to switch to new, alternative protein sources.

18%

of all greenhouse gases produced annually come directly from livestock farming

Resources at their limit

32%

of the drinkable water used in agriculture goes straight to animal husbandry

60%

the current protein production would have to be increased to meet the demand in 2050

70%

of the agricultural land is already used for animal husbandry.

The solution: Insects

* Compared mealworm to pork

4,1x

better feed conversion. With the use of 2.2 kg of feed, 1 kg of mealworms can be obtained.

3,5x

less space required. "Vertical farming" enables insects to be kept even on small areas.

149x

lower greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the lack of fermentation processes in the digestive tract, insects produce far fewer pollutants.

2,5x

lower consumption of drinking water. Insects regulate their water balance through food and do not need an additional water source.

What we offer

Our goal is to develop an automated reproduction module that will significantly reduce the mortality rate in the reproduction of darkling beetles in order to increase the production output of an insect farm. The death rate is often in the double-digit percentage range, which means that the potential of an insect farm often does not develop as planned and falls short of expectations. Improving the death rate can also improve the economics of an insect farm.
