Fera Science Ltd., a pioneer in specialized agri-food and environmental science services, is pleased to announce the launch of its specialty insect laboratory at its Biotech Campus (YBC) location in York, UK. The £1m expansion involved turning a former storage facility on the property into a specially designed insect research facility. A range of industries will benefit from Fera’s R&D services as they assess the viability and scale up procedures by which they can best adopt the technology. With the help of this specialized research and development (R&D) facility, insect bioconversion of biomass wastes into valuable products will expand quickly.
The laboratory, the first of its kind in the UK and one of the first in Europe, allows Fera to expand the scope and scale of its current insect services to “twin” the process of insect bioconversion at factory production scale, thereby helping to meet the needs of clients from across the food industry globally. The process of feeding insect biomass residue to produce valorized goods, such as premium proteins and oils, packaging materials, or soil nutrients, is known as insect bioconversion. It is a circular economic strategy that lessens waste and offers substitute components for animal feed that are sourced responsibly. Fera’s work has focused on developing this application with black soldier fly larvae for multiple reasons such as efficient production process, yielding products which is rich in protein, contains a good balance of essential amino acids, minerals, fats and is highly suitable for feeding monogastric animals (poultry, pigs, and fish). Fera can assist its clients on cost savings to maximize the circular economy benefits of insect bioconversion in line with net carbon zero targets and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
