Insect Technologies

The mass rearing of insects is the most recent challenge in which Kour Energy have decided to take part.
We are convinced that this field is going to be of crucial importance in the near future and it will provide the necessary resources for an ever-growing population. Due to its complexity, we believe that this kind of activity requires the simultaneous collaboration of different actors, such as companies and research entities. For this reason, it fits extremely well with our ability of creating strong entrepreneurial relationships and coordinating technical projects.

Today, we offer ourselves as designers and developers of systems for insect rearing, as well as consultants for the optimisation of production processes.
Our approach, in this phase of rapid market growth, entails a specific study of the client’s needs, in order to provide a solution that can be both innovative, sustainable and aligned with the current legislation.

Our successes

Strategic projects

Participation in the regional project Valoribio (POR-FESR 2014-2020), ended in 2018, for the design of an automatic system for rearing BSF larvae on chicken manure. Ultimate goal of the project was to obtain bioplastics as the final result of the process.

Application for two patents for innovative technologies in BSF rearing

Participation in the European project SCALIBUR (EU Innovation Action), Horizon 2020 programme, ending in 2022.
Design of a pilot plant for the efficient conversion of organic waste (HORECA) into valuable materials, by means of BSF larvae rearing.

Design and development of a plant for the industrial rearing of crickets, in collaboration and for Nutrinsect Srl
