  1. 1. Feeding the 45 million : substituting soybean protein with insect protein within EU poultry and egg production

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Författare :Douglas Hunter; [2019]
    Nyckelord :insects; insect production; livestock feed; entomophagy; land use; futures research; food security; energy security; black soldier fly; mealworm; house cricket; sustainable development;

    Sammanfattning : A global population increasing both in number and in resource consumption per capita has resulted in food, livestock feed and energy crop demands that are increasingly difficult to meet on rapidly degrading soils within a diminishing available area of arable land. With further expansion of agricultural land infeasible and yield increases through further intensification insufficient to meet the scale of predicted crop demand, the use of insects as an animal feed has gained traction as a method of not only reducing competition for arable land, but also some of the detrimental environmental consequences of livestock and conventional feed production.

  2. 2. Are edible insects the new black? An exploratory study assessing Danish children’s perception of edible insects

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Författare :Anita Geertsen; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Edible insects; entomophagy; adolescents; perceptions; meat alternative; barriers to adoption; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The consumption and production of livestock have a negative impact on the environment and climate. In many Western countries, the consumption is particularly high and it is expected to increase globally. This increase will lead to further pressure on already stressed planetary boundaries. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Jämförelseanalys mellan konventionella och insektsbaserade djurfoder

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Industriell produktion; KTH/Industriell produktion

    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Stora förändringarna sker inom den globala konsumentmarknaden gällande människors livsstil och matvanor framför allt i utvecklingsländerna. Detta sker till följd av en ökad världsbefolkning, urbanisering och växande privatekonomi. I samband med detta uppkommer även en större efterfrågan på animaliskt protein. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Valorising Organic Waste using the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens), in Ghana

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Gabrielle Joly; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Review; case studies; food waste; faecal sludge; co-digestion; low-tech system; cost-benefit analysis CBA ; Etat de l’art; études de cas; déchets alimentaires; boues de vidange; co-traitement; système low-tech; analyse coûts-bénéfices; Granskning; fallstudier; livsmedelsavfall; fekalslam; sambehandling; lågteknologiskt system; kostnads-nyttoanalys;

    Sammanfattning : Ghana as a rapidly growing and urbanizing middle-income country is facing a number of challenges, including (1) implementing a sanitary, environmental-friendly, and economically-sound waste management system; (2) increasing its agricultural productivity in a sustainable way to meet the growing domestic food demand; and (3) providing livelihood opportunities in both rural and urban areas. Using the black soldier fly (BSF), a particularly beneficial insect, to locally and cost-effectively valorise abundant, high-impacting, and nutrient rich organic waste streams, such as food waste (FW) and faecal sludge (FS), into affordable and sustainable farming inputs like organic fertilizer and animal feed products, could tackle all these challenges at the same time.

  5. 5. Insect larvae (Hermetia illucens) as an alternative feed source for laying hens

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Författare :Victoria Linder; [2018]
    Nyckelord :fjäderfä; Hermetia illucens; djurfoder; insektsmjöl;

    Sammanfattning : The European egg industry is dependent on imported soy which contributes to climate change, partly because of deforestation and transport. Therefore, alternative feed sources are needed. The levels of soy used in poultry feed in Sweden are lower than the general levels in Europe. LÄS MER
