Title: The Hermetia System (Commercial Potential of the Black Soldier Fly: A cost Effective and Value Added Solution to Manure Management
Agency: USDA
Contract: 2006-33610-16804
Award Amount: $80,000.00
 

Abstract:

Combined animal feeding operations generate low value manure which cannot be economically transported more than a few miles and cannot be used locally at proper agronomic rates. Local nutrient overload then occurs, potentially resulting in odors, lowered water quality and pest insects; depending on how the manure is handled. Quickly extracting these nutrients before undesirable natural processes occur and concentrating them into forms valuable enough to economically transport long distances would solve these problems. We are focusing on the Hermetia system as the economic engine/ commercial driver to demonstrate economic feasibility and environmental friendliness of this approach.
