Our plant for recycling organic residues and for the sustainable production of animal proteins is characterized by its modular design. The concept of modularity has top priority in the development of our system and has already been successfully demonstrated in our pilot system. A modular system design is able to spatially separate the various production steps and scale them as required.
Using standardized modules, the size of the plant can be variably adapted according to certain circumstances, in which way planning costs can be reduced and construction time can be shortened. Furthermore, our construction based on shipping containers results in low transport costs and opens up a worldwide range of applications for our plant concept. This high flexibility is supported by an innovative construction and the selection of proven technology from industry and agriculture. In this way, we guarantee high reliability with complete independence of location at the same time.
The necessary productivity and thus the profitability of our plant is determined by a minimum size of the plant. The minimum size includes all modules required for cultivation and processing with a space requirement of approx. 2500m². Our modular concept allows easy and quick upscaling at any time. According to our calculations, a smaller plant and the associated production volume are currently uneconomical.
The flexibility of our plant was also taken into account when planning the automation system. All automation levels can be replaced by manpower as far as possible. We are therefore able to deliver our systems with different automation levels, depending on the request and location. From a low level of automation with higher labor requirements to a high level of automation in combination with low labor requirements as well.
In the development progress of plants we set value on high production safety, simple operation and high occupational health and safety. With these requirements in mind, we build reliable and robust plants that are independent of location and can be operated worldwide. We finished the construction of the first modular insect breeding plant in the beginning of 2021. Currently we are scaling up our production. Have a look at our progress and the current status under News.
Our larvaes are valuable disposers of almost all organic residues. Many residues which arise from industry or commerce unfortunately are not being used; the opposite occures. They get deposited on landfills, compost piles or biowaste treatment plants. These rest materials mostly cannot be used anymore as classic animal feed for animals such as chicken or pigs. Whereas our insects are still able to feed on them and they are perfectly suitable. In this way, an important step towards sustainable circular economy is taken.
If you are looking for a way to reuse your organic waste material and contribute in this way to environmental protection and circular economy, do not hesitate to contact us. We will create a concept for the reutilization and figure the legal possibilities with you.
We supply sustainable and regionally produced animal proteins in the form of protein powder. These are suitable for pet food production according to the approval number DE14729013413. Furthermore, our dried larvae as well as the extracted fats and oils can be used e.g. as wild bird food and for zoo and pet food. Our live larvae are a special treat for e.g. hedgehogs, wild bird species, turtles and other reptiles, but also for the native chickens and songbirds. You can order alive as well as dried larvae from us. We will send them directly to you by DHL delivery. Minimum amount for all our products is 1 kg. We are looking forward to your contact enquiry.
Our larvaes convince by their healthy look: they are relatively large with a size of up to 2cm and are yellow. They are extremely robust and are able to be stored in very low temperatures for days. After time and with the exact temperature, the larvaes start to darken and pupate as well. After some days, living black soldier flies hatch out of These. If These animals are stored in a the warmth, an anclosed box is recommended. An additional feed of the flies nor the larvaes is needed.
Compared to living larvaes, dried larvaes are easier to transport and last much longer as well. They contain the whole spectrum of fats and oils and can easily be transported and stored in so called Big Bags. Of course, smaller amounts are also possible. Especially our local birds enjoy this little delicacy.
The Protein flour is the endproduct which we aim for at madebymade GmbH. It is generated during pressing of the larvaes and has a flour like consistency. The target Protein Content lays at over 40% and at fat Content of less than 8%. The dark Protein flour has a bit of a nutty smell and contains essential amino acids too. Through the processing, Protein flour has very similar characteristics to fish flour and can be used in a diverse way in the feed Industry.
Fats and oils
During the pressing process, valuable Lipids are generated as well. An Analysis of the fatty acids indicated, that 30% of the fatty acids are unsaturated, which defines them as the so called “good” fats, according to the nutritional Industry. Of These 30%, 10% are multiple unsaturated fatty acids, which are seen as especially valuable. The melting Point of this dark Brown fat is at 40°C. It contains, similar to Protein flour, a nutty smell.
Substrate / fertilizer
The excrements of the larvae we breed have exceptional properties. In contrast to normal animal excrements, the substrate of the larvae is rather dry and almost odourless. madebymade is approved as a manufacturer of organic fertiliser and soil conditioner (category 2 – liquid manure from Hermetia illucens – larvae) with the approval number DE 14 729 0130 23. During the production process, considerably less climate-damaging greenhouse gases are released than, for example, in classic composting. No toxic substances or heavy metals are present. Initial tests show that vegetable plants react particularly well to our soil conditioner. In areas with weak soils, we can provide real added value for food security through our recycling management. In domestic areas, the 100% sustainability of the earth is a real added value for every convinced gardener.
