Technology Transfer
SUSTAINABLE FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY

At ENTOGREEN we are experts on developing biotechnological solutions for the production of animal protein and organic fertilizer through the reuse and valorization of wastes and by-products from the agrifood industry.

Our company was born in 2014 and our technology is the result of a long R&D process started in 2011.

Although we have started to produce Tenebrio molitor, we are specists in the production and use of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens), achieving a highly efficient and productive biodigestion technology.

In this process we have successfully passed through the laboratory and pre-industrial phases which have allowed us to get to the point where we can apply our technology at the industrial level, reusing and valuing hundreds of tons of organic waste per month, producing several tons of organic fertilizer, protein. and insect oil.

Business Areas

PRODUCTION

EntoGreen is focused in the installation and management of
its first full-scale factory in Portugal, which will be in the
Ribatejo region, the agricultural heartland of our country,
with the expected production launch by mid-2020.
Our company intends to build new factories in other
countries, both as a direct investment or through strategic
partnerships. 

 

CONSULTING AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

Besides production, EntoGreen is also dedicated to support new insect based sustainable food projects. We can support these new projects through R&D and industrial consulting at our pilot unit in Portugal, where we can teach how to produce insect at a full-scale level and transfer our knowledge and process.
