FARMYNG - Flagship demostration of industrial scale production of nutrient ressources from mealworms to develop a bioeconmoy new generation


Beetles are protein-rich and can be sustainably farmed, with a relatively light environmental footprint in terms of production and processing. The use of insect protein is already allowed in pet food and feed for aquaculture. The EU-funded FARMŸNG project will develop on an industrial and automated scale the breeding and transformation of the [i]Tenebrio Molitor [/i] insect (mealworm) for the production of animal nutrition and fish nutrition. It will demonstrate a bio-based value chain for sustainable, safe, and premium feed products. The project aims to produce 1,500 tonnes of protein and 400 tonnes of oil per month – rates never before demonstrated in the insect protein production market. CLIB is a project partner, tasked to disseminate the projects results and to support business model development.
