Blue Wings Composting

Young nature scientists are co-creating new futures

The Blue Wings Composting core research team is formed of Länsiharju school 10 years old children and their teacher. The work of the research team is supported and monitored by national and international Insect Economy researchers.

According to the conducted research to feed mixed biowaste to black soldier fly larvae (Blue Wings) is the most promising approach. The performance of the process is measured by survival rate, larval weight, waste reduction and bioconversion rate.

The purpose of the Länsiharju’s research team is to explore what are the results when black soldier fly larvae live at the school room and they are fed with school kitchen food waste.

The research team explores also how to recycle larvae that are loaded with protein and what to do with the food waste that has been prosessed by larvae.
