How does bioconversion work and why is it a “valorization” process?

Bioconversion is the process of converting organic matter into a resource. The widely found Black Soldier Fly (BSF) insect is designed to efficiently consume organic waste and grow into a protein-rich biomass. BSF bioconversion is a valorization process that recovers potentially lost nutrients from low value organic waste to produce an added value material which can be used in feed formulations for monogastric animals such as poultry, fish and pigs.
