Nature and technology work in harmony with the unique Khepri Bioconversion Module. This unit is designed for food manufacturers, abattoirs and hospitality businesses to conveniently and efficiently recycle organic waste on-site. The Khepri Bioconversion Module reduces waste volumes by up to 65% and decreases waste management costs. This unit offers an innovative solution to getting rid of food waste by converting it into insects, fertiliser or biogas.
The ingenuity of the black soldier fly (BFS) bioconversion module lies in the atmospheric control unit that manages temperature, humidity and airflow to create an optimum environment for BFS larvae to thrive. The unit’s design neatly hides any unsightly mess that comes with recycling food while also eliminating odours.
Organic waste conversion process
The bioconversion module is easy to use – simply open the hatch doors, pour organic waste inside the unit and BFS eggs. Once the doors are closed, turn on the atmospheric control and rotate the unit to the harvesting position.
The larval stage begins after the eggs hatch. Each day, a black soldier fly larva can consume twice its body weight in food. The larvae quickly breakdown food to ingest nutrients from organic waste. After ten days, organic waste is reduced into compost.
