Industrial entomology approaches as an innovative tool of composting


Author(s): Hager Ashour Salah, Dina Housam Abd El-Monem and Eman Alaaeldin Abdelfattah

Abstract: Industrial entomology is the study of the application of insects to industrial processes. This field has the potential to revolutionize the way we compost organic waste. Insects can be used to accelerate the composting process, improve the quality of the compost, and reduce the environmental impact of composting. Therefore using the insect approaches can be considered as a tool of climate change mitigation. Industrial entomology approaches offer a number of advantages over traditional composting methods. Insects are more efficient at breaking down organic matter than other methods, and they can produce compost in a shorter period of time. Insects also produce compost that is of higher quality, with a better nutrient balance. In addition, industrial entomology approaches are more environmentally friendly than traditional methods, as they do not require the use of chemicals or water. However the beneficially of using insects in composting, there are a lot of challenges of up calling of this technique in industry. So, more studies can proof the waste reduction efficiency and compost yield of Insect based technology as an innovative industry. This can inform the decision-making for implementation of organic waste treatment facilities.
