Description of the technology

Trends towards 2050 predict a steady population increase to 9 billion people, forcing an increased food/feed output from available agro-ecosystems resulting in an even greater pressure on the environment. Scarcities of agricultural land, water, forest, fishery and biodiversity resources, as well as nutrients and non-renewable energy are foreseen. In this context, microalgae and insects represent a great alternative as sustainable and abundant novel source of proteins and are expected to be a great alternative as sustainable and abundant feedstock to enter the European food market.
