Goals

The aim of the project is to increase the production of insects into feed by enhancing the use of by-products of the forest industry.

Outputs

The project develops and tests methods for the utilization of lignin in growing black soldier flies both directly and with the help of other organisms. The larvae are compared to the normally fed larvae and their use as feed component is evaluated.
