Global estimates show that about one billion tons of organic waste is produced annually by cities. Managing this waste is costly, meaning that it is often simply dumped, leading to carbon emissions, pollution and vermin.
Insects could offer a holistic issue to the challenge of urban organic waste. Their efficiency in safely converting organic waste into food, feed and nutrient-rich compost is well-proven. In this film, we hear from two companies, Sanergy and InsectiPro, about how insects can transform waste into profits and how soil fertility can be a key component of a circular economy for food in cities.
