Sustainable Mealworm Production for Feed and Food
This project will investigate how to grow mealworms (beetle larvae) in a more automated and standardised manner suitable for cost-effective mass production. We will design a mass production facility and implement algorithms for monitoring mealworm health and maturity. We will investigate organic (vegetable) side-streams as feed for growing mealworms with consistently high protein and fatty acid content; suitable for petfood, animal feed and human food (once EU legislation is in place).
