The black soldier fly larvae is a promising opportunity as a source of protein for e.g. animal feed or even food products for humans. These larvae can be fed with organic waste as a circularity solution. The OLP enables the separation of inert materials from organic waste so the feed efficiency of the insects can be improved. Additionally, the larvae can then be separated from the remains of the food waste for further processing with the Rotoshifter. Here we use both multiple wind shifters and a drum screen in one system to separate the larva from the remains based on size and weight.
To separate the food remains from the larvae, both are simultaneously fed through the top of the Rotoshifter. Here, they are sorted using air and rotational forces and several drum screens. The resulting fractions are the clean insects and the manure and food remains.
