> Summary:
> WANTED: An organism(s) that can consume all types of bio-organic wastes,
> do the job very quickly, convert all wastes into useful by-products. It
> should be able to work independently.
> ARE THERE SUCH ORGANISMS ?. Yes, certain larvae of Insects that can
> consume as much as 15 kg of organic wastes per m2 per day, do a neat
> clean-up job quickly and achieve zero waste. Who can they be, how do
> they do it, how can I get them to work for me ?
> This electronic workshop is organised by the Integrated Biosystems
> Network (IBSnet) and will enable you to join a group of experts and
> practitioners to discuss how zero waste can be achieved in organic waste
> recycling, how to grow and manage these larvae, what are the risks we
> need to consider, what and how to use the by-products, etc.. The goal of
> this e-workshop is to increase public awareness and to form a sub-group
> under the IBSnet; in order to popularise the approach for organic waste
> recycling, to convince policy makers and encourage agencies and
> individuals to fund R&D projects globally, and to apply, adapt and
> further develop technology to suit local needs.
> The following experts will provide materials for discussion by email :
> (1) Paul Olivier (USA). The Bio-Conversion of Putrescent Waste
> (2) Lylian Rodriguez, Siv Kong & Thomas R Preston (Cambodia). Insect
> larvae as recycling agents: an alternative for the conversion of organic
> wastes into high quality protein
> (3) Craig Sheppard (USA). Black Soldier Fly and Others for Value-Added
> Manure Management
> (4) Tran Tan Viet (Vietnam). Mass Production of Insect larvae
> (5) Kevin Warburton & Vivienne Hallman (Australia). Processing of
> organic materials by the soldier fly, Hermetia illicens
> More information to be provided via the ET-JIZO mailing list.
