Technology line for recycling green waste into protein feeds by fly maggots

The idea is in simple single technology line, that will help to convert organic waste of agriculture (green waste, produciton waste, preconsumed waste) into protein feed additives and fertilizers by fly maggots.

The technology line can be installed inside any farm near the source of waste and will not require much time or investments to work.

Maggots (in eggs) are place on waste and grow for 2-3 weeks than they are separated from recycled waste and dried. Dried maggots are used as a source of protein in feeds and replace fishmeal, soymeal and other proteins.

Placing the line at the farm near the waste allows to get proteins at production cost that is lower than market price on traditional proteins.

Hello, we build patented incubators and rooms to grow insects using IOT and control feeding and waist. Have you done any actual trail? May be the growing time can be much shorter and quality of insect shift with the source of feed. You need to have an exact protein product every batch, so how will you do it with different feed level's
