This Company Believes Insects Can Provide Biofuel To Power Our Future
A Polish group is testing out a new factory concept that can provide a source of renewable energy, and even serve space missions
A company called HiProMine wants to turn insects into biofuel for anything from beauty products to substance for future space colonies. HiProMine created a prototype of the first insect-driven factory in August of 2015 in Robakowo, Poland. Here’s how it works: the factory gathers the waste produced from nearby meat, dairy, fruit and vegetable industries to feed bioreactors, each containing a different species of insects, including grasshoppers, locusts, mealworms and cockroaches.
