This Industrial Bioprocessing TOE features innovations using insect proteins for animal feed. Insect proteins are gaining preference as protein replacements due to their low carbon footprint, simpler infrastructure and regulatory requirements, and lower cost compared to using conventional protein sources. The profiles featured in this TOE edition are insect proteins from an insect biorefinery, from nutrient recycling using organic waste and pre-consumer organic waste by fly larvae, and from the frass and insect larvae.
The Industrial Bioprocessing TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, processes and strategic insights of industries involving bioprocessing, including innovations in the development and production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, alternative fuels, chemical feedstocks, food and beverages, and consumer products.
