What is FARMŸNG?

FARMŸNG will build a large-scale vertical farming plant producing sustainable, safe and premium products for fertilizer, petfood & fishfood from an innovative origin: the Tenebrio molitor.

FARMŸNG is a project funded by the Bio-Based Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under the Research and Innovation Framework Programme H2020 (link of the BBI JU website). The consortium included 20 key-players spanning the evry link of the value chain (link to the consortium page).

Why choosing the breeding of Tenebrio Molitor?

The Tenebrio Molitor is the larvae stage of the darkling beetle. These super-mealworms are the best insect to breed because :

  • The breeding is inexpensive and very easy to raise. The Tenebrio Molitor requires few resources: dark, heat and humidity.
  • The Tenebrio Molitor has a protein-rich composition with real nutritional and health benefits to animals and plants.
