Black Soldier Fly Trial Planning day

We are very excited that Baptiste as part of his ‘stage’ (sort of a work-experience / internship) will be able to run our latest black soldier fly pilot – as imagined by volunteer and ecologist Dan. The plan is to test the grow out and response of BSF on a series of single issue urban waste streams… and to test the resulting larvae for basic protein levels. We will also hope to have a go at freeze drying, grinding and alginating. We will be visiting our local brewer, baker and cafe to see what they can give us 🙂 – Today Baptiste and Dan draw up their plans – which are made slightly easier by not having to deal with the reproduction side of the fly’s life cycle. WhatsApp Image 2017-11-01 at 12.00.43.jpeg
