Innovative Solutions For The Agriculture Of Tomorrow
Our Products, Powered By Our Technologies
The BugsLife s.r.l. is bringing to the market the first mass-produced insect protein flour made in Italy “A long-seeked milestone toward sustainable agriculture”
Combining patented methodologies with the finest rendering technologies, we offer a complete package for large-scale bioconversion
Insect protein flour: premium ingredients, palatable, balanced, today with no compromises on sustainability
The bioconversion process of the BSF larvae produces a highly rich compost that can be used as a fertilizer
The BugsLife technology package perfectly fits with another industrial sector which is strategic for the EU energy and agricultural compartment: the biogas plants.
At last, the BugsLife technologies allows the bioconversion at an industrial scale: this milestone is achieved thanks to an innovative approach that stands upon two pivotal pillars:
- Complete heat recovery from the biogas plant.
- Keeping the high-quality byproducts within the food supply chain.
Circular Economy Is The Future Of Agricultural Businesses
Italy and Europe import around 30% of the consumpted feed. This extreme dependency on imported protein has necessary to be reduced as it makes our system vulnerable. It hence becomes crucial to shorten the food supply chain and dignify the agricultural bioproducts that are routinely generated. In order to achieve these goals, the BugsLife exploits a specific type of insect which has been naturally specializing for millions of years in the task of nutrient recovery, in a fast, reliable and efficient way: the Black Soldier Fly.Our Mission
