FARMYNG - Production of proteins from insects for animal feed and fertilisers

FARMYNG is a consortium formed by 20 companies from 8 countries. Founded in the framework of 'Horizon 2020 Public-Private Partnership Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking' (topic BBI.2018.F2 - Large-scale production of proteins for food and feed applications from alternative, sustainable sources), it aims to produce proteins from insects for animal feed. In parallel, the waste will be recovered for use as soil fertilisers.

Familia Torres participates in the project to study the viability of these fertilisers, which would have a lower carbon footprint than conventional fertilisers as they are byproducts. This research is part of its commitment to reduce CO2 emissions to help mitigate the effects of climate change.
