A green future - with insects

Larvae were made to digest food waste, create proteins and fertilise the soil. With insects we can both produce more food and take better care of nature.

On the threshold of industrial production

Invertapro specialise in utilising local food waste and organic side streams for insect production.

We have developed Norway's first pilot factory, based on a long series of research and development projects. Since 2016, we have built up expertise in biology, automation and end products.

Invertapro is about to take the step to full-scale automated production. Meanwhile we are developing industrial symbioses with other industries - interconnecting nutrient flows - to get the most out of available resources.

Small larvae with a large climate effect

A comprehensive life-cycle analysis compared our products with existing feed for fish farming. It concluded that:

  • 90% fewer climate emissions

  • 99% reduction in land and water requirements (compared to soy)

 

BIR and Invertapro also carried out a life-cycle analysis for handling food waste, and found 86 % better climate effect than the next-best alternative, which is biogas.

 

Therefore, Invertapro and BIR will collaborate on waste management for the new biogas plant in western Norway.

In our model no resource goes to waste

Invertapro use discarded food stuffs and organic side-streams in our production. Anything that is not converted to protein-rich larvae becomes fertiliser. This way, no resources go to waste in our production.

Bløme for home and garden

We produce Bløme, an excellent universal fertiliser and biostimulant. It is made from larval droppings and exoskeleton that are shed during insect production.
