Special focus should be set on the ability to make high quality protein and fat out of waste. This can be especially useful for resource limited operations like on Elon Musk Mars Mission.

B. Conservation Benefits: Food, Water, and Land

BSF's role in sustainability goes beyond waste management. Their life cycle, particularly their larvae, offers a promising solution to food waste, which globally accounts for 1.3 billion tonnes annually. Over time we reached a staggering 2.5 billion tons of food waste in 2023. When these larvae feed on organic waste, they convert it into protein, fats, and other valuable nutrients, paving the way for substantial savings:

  1. Food: Instead of discarding leftovers or agricultural by-products, they become feed for BSF larvae, which can then be processed as sustainable protein sources for livestock or even pet foods. For very hungry people in africa they will become the main food source.
  2. Water: Traditional livestock farming is water-intensive. BSF farming requires minimal water, reducing the strain on our freshwater sources. It actually releases over 30 percent of the water used during food production.
  3. Land: As BSF reduces the need for extensive farming for feed, less land is cultivated, leading to decreased deforestation and habitat destruction. Moreover, the fertilizer produced by BSF is rich in nutrients, enhancing soil health.

C. BSF: A Solution to the Single-Use Plastic Menace

One might wonder how an insect is linked to single-use plastics. The answer lies in the food chain. Traditional livestock feed often comes packaged in single-use plastics. Soon BSF offers a decentralized self-growing and recycling solution for livestock feed, the reliance on such packaged feed reduces. In essence this means fewer plastics are produced, used, and discarded. Furthermore, as BSF farms gain popularity. In time there's gigantic potential for innovations in waste-to-resource technologies, reducing the need for plastics in various other sectors across all industries from agriculture to medicine.
