In nature, there is no waste as everything has a use to one organism or another – waste as a resource. This is widely referred to as the Biocycle. In this perfect system, nutrients are recovered and converted into a range of natural products. At the BioCycle, we use the larvae of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia Illucens) as the primary agent for turning toilet resources into multiple high value components including soil fertility products, and oil for biodiesel production. Larvae can also be a source of valuable biotech products including beneficial enzymes. Instead of being treated as waste to be discarded, this ensures that nutrient and energy values are recovered to support sustainable agricultural cycles and to encourage natural fuel use.
