Biofertilizer with fish wastes

Problem statement

There is higher loss of food in consumption than production along the food systems in Africa. Food recovery can create multiple jobs and solve feed/fertilizer challenges for farmers in Africa.

Executive summary

Produce animal proteins and organic fertilizer using Black Soldier Fly larvae.

Technology description

Use of fish offals and other organic waste from markets to hatch and feed Black Soldier Fly larvae and produce organic fertilizer and fish and poultry feeds at Hydro Victoria Fish & Poultry Feed Plant, using 10-20 Tons of waste per day and producing 2-3 Tons of animal proteins per day, 6-12 Tons of organic fertilizer per day.
Located in Busia County in Kenya, East Africa.

Market deployment considerations

Small bioeconomy farms can have significant impact in villages compared to commercial large farms in urbans towns. Consumption and production patterns are similar across Africa. Land use patterns and trends are near similar eg More small-scale farmers feeding cities and communities. Multiple demand of products at village level.
