Virtual AgroInsecta 2020

AgroInsecta, launched in Tortona last year, is the first Italian professional event dedicated exclusively to the insect raising supply chain, to connect researchers to, producers and end-users of mankind and environment beneficials insects.
AgroInsecta is back, one year later, in virtual form, to overcome not only the barriers of social distancing, but the geographical ones as well. In fact, this edition will dedicate a special space to international experiences.
AgroInsecta will take place on the days of 24 e 25 September, dedicate, respectively to Italian market, the first, and at international experiences, the second.
Ad AgroInsecta the world of insect production with that of users will also be compared for the first time, such as animal feed or fish farming.
Those registered for the event will receive the link to participate in the conferences a few days in advance, via computer or portable device, smartphone o tablet.
The detailed program will be published shortly.
Participation in the event is free, but registration is required by 18 September. Places are limited.

The sustainability of insect farming for the production of protein flours and new products must also consider the use of substrates in a circular economy perspective. In this context, research lines are underway to evaluate the use of by-products of the agri-food industry as basic components in Tenebrio molitor livestock diets. The results of the production performance obtained and the application criticalities are discussed.

The applied circular economy: experience with the soldier fly (Gnadochaeta illucens)

The use of insects as a possible solution to reduce food waste is an excellent example of the Circular Economy. Indeed, the larvae of some species can be used to better manage and enhance organic food waste, bioconverting the waste biomass on which they grow and producing proteins and lipids that can be used for food in the livestock sector. The soldier fly (Gnadochaeta illucens) (BSF), given the high sustainability, low water requirements and minimal greenhouse gas emissions, it has been studied for its ability to reduce large quantities of organic waste.

After an overview I will describe the potential of BSF larvae as bioconverters, the presentation will show the main research areas of the Department of Agricultural Sciences, Forestry and Food of the University of Turin and in recent years, in collaboration with the Department of Veterinary Sciences and the CNR, he has dealt with both the breeding of insects on different substrates and the use of products deriving from insects (protein flours, fat) in animal nutrition.
