Recycling of organic waste of
agriculture by fly maggots to receive
protein feeds for animals, birds and fish
and organic fertilizer

of innovative
center Skolkovo


How it happens?

In the process of breeding birds, pigs, fishes, cattle there appear meat waste: mortality, slaughterhouse waste, waste of meat processing

We recycle these types of waste into valuable products: protein feeds and fertilizer.

To do this we use maggots of fly Lucilia Caesar. The cycle of growth of larvae from egg to adult stage is 5 days. During the period of growth larvae secretes on its nutrition (cut meat waste) special substance which decomposes waste and makes it available for recycling. Larvae repeatedly passes through itself this substrate to obtain the nutrients it needs to grow. In the result all meat waste convert into alive biomass of fly maggots and recycled substrate which becomes and organic fertilizer. The next stage – is the collection and separation of maggots from recycled substrate and drying maggots. In the result, we get ready for use protein feeds from fly maggots.

Protein feeds

The usage of protein feeds from fly maggots as a protein component in the diets of birds, animals and fishes increases their daily weight gain, reduces the usage of feeds and leads to strengthening the immune system

The quality and profitability
of production grow.

The Population

Lucilia Caesar – is a green blowfly.

Exactly the same flies work in our company. They act as direct participants in the cycle of substances in nature, recreated in our pilot production site.

We do not catch flies from the outside - we breed them inside enterprise. In the insectarium, we created comfortable conditions for them and now they have longer life and egg laying.

Why Lucilia Caesar?

There are more than 90 000 of types of flies in the world. Each of these types performs its own function.

Lucilia Caesar – is a versatile insect. Its maggots not only recycle and decontaminate organic waste but also contain great volume of nutrients.

Maggots of Lucilia Caesar showed a great antivirus and antibacterial activity.


This insect has a great value for Human: the product of our technology can be used as a valuable materials for pharmaceutical, microbiological, cosmetic and food industries


Exactly the same flies work at our enterprise.

They are bred in special conditions and are the part of сycling of matter in Nature recreated at our pilot factory.

For whom?

Pig farms

Poultry farms

Fish farms



Federal Law No. 89
"About Wastes of Production and Consumption"

Every agricultural farm accumulates
a lot of organic waste.

This material should be subject to seizure and processing, in
accordance with the requirements of environmental control.

The authorized state body is entitled to revoke a license from an economic entity in the event that the entity violates the requirements of federal legislation.

And also the punishment for infringement of the requirements accepted by the law was toughened, in particular, it affected the suspension of activities "

Federal Law Ns 89
"About Wastes of Production and Consumption"

As a result, agricultural enterprises are compelled to resort to the help of specialized waste recycling companies. Or purchase equipment and get a license for self-utilization.
With any option, you have to pay a lot of money for solving this problem.

In addition, a separate graph of the company's expenses goes to purchase high-quality protein feed for its animals.


is a technology given by Nature
The problem of recycling of waste is becoming very relevant at the federal level: in 2013, Vladimir Putin held a meeting on stimulating the recycling of waste of production and consumption.

«Our task is to create all conditions for industrial enterprises to rationally, competently deal with waste, to pass towards closed and non-waste technologies»

— the Head of state stressed,
commenting on this situation.

During several years of research “New Biotechnologies” (Zooprotein project) officially proved the ecological and
economical expedience of usega of the technology of organic waste recycling by fly maggots.

Benefits of the technology

A farm reduces expenses of waste recycling. This is not required any more.
There is a saving on purchasing protein feeds for animals: you already get the product.
The risk of animal breeding decreases. You have your own production of protein feeds and control the entire process as you don’t buy feeds from external suppliers.
The technology does not harm the environment. In the process of recycling there are no emissions that pollute air. Everything happens in natural way.

Protein feeds


Protein feeds
from fly maggots

Protein feeds – is dried under special conditions fly maggots. It is used as protein component in animals’ diets.

Protein feeds contains great volume of nutrients, digestive ferments, natural immunostimulants. These ingredients increase digestibility of feeds, weight gains and strengthen the immune system.

Contents of protein
feeds from fly maggots


Protein feeds from fly maggots
– is the best replacement
for traditional protein feeds

What proteins are in use?

For feeding pigs, poultry and fishes most companies use fishmeal, soymeal or meatmeal.

What is wrong with traditional proteins?

This is one of the most qualitative and popular feeds components in the world. But there is a deficit of fishmeal. Only in Russia the annual deficit of fishmeal is around 1 million of tons. The average price for fish meal raised in 8 times during last 15 years! Additionally Russian fishmeal is often falsified what creates additional risks for farmers.


98% of soy produced in the world is GMO. It needs to be balanced by amino acids additionally. Soymeal contains non-digestible components.


The technology of production of meatmeal requires heating up to 150 degrees, this destroys protein and decreases the value of feeds.

Comparison with fishmeal and meat-and-bone meal

of usage

weight gain

Protein feeds from fly maggots has a balanced amino acids profile and optimal indicators of energy value. This leads to the additional weight gain for animals.


The researches of replacement of traditional protein feeds to fly maggots show that animals, poultry and fish gain their weight faster.

Positive results of feeding piglets were proved by Russian institute of livestock of L.K. Ernst:

«On the basis of the data obtained in physiological tests, we believe it is possible to include in piglets' feeding diets instead of the traditionally used protein ingredients of animal origin (fishmeal) flour from larvae of the fly Lucilia Caesar, produced by OOO Novie Biotekhnologii up to 2 % of the weight of the mixed fodder».

Also we observe the decrease of feeds consumption, it means the raise of the efficiency of feeding.


Chemical-toxicological studies of protein feeds of fly maggots on the basis of the Voronezh State Agrarian University were carried out:

«Based on the results of the studies, protein feeds of fly maggots is classified as the 4th class of low-toxic chemicals that does not possess skin-resorptive, teratogenic, allergenic, cumulative properties. There was no negative impact on individual organs, systems and, in general, the body of experimental animals».

Protein feeds
of fly maggots
is certified.

by Nature

Rough industrial process of production of other feeds completely excludes insects from animals’ diets. This is unfair as birds, pigs and fishes consume insects in wild life.

We keep our protein feeds free from antioxidants and synthetic components. Our product is 100% organic. In this from it exists in Nature

Protein feeds quality control.
Each party passes control before dispatch.

Internal control

At this stage Chief technologist evaluates he quality of feeds on taste, smell and feel.

External control

The stage of external control is conducted by veterinary lab. Every party passes the expertise for the row of indicators in correspondence
to Russian law:

— Microbiology
— Toxicology
— Radiology

Each customer gets a special patch of documents:

Specification, veterinary certificate, certificate of origin, protocol of expertize and shipping documents.

Usage of organic fertilizer
– right decision

As the result of the recycling process apart of biomass of fly maggots we get a substrate, which turns into fertilizer after drying and milling.

Usage of this fertilizer for growing grains, vegetables, fruits and berries – is an additional value for enterprises.

Waste100 kg
Fertilizer25 kg

If you are using our technology, from 100 kg of meat waste you will get 20-25 kg of fertilizer

Content of fertilizer

Organic fertilizer is full of amino acids, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium. Acidity level pH 7.5.


Goes to the construction of plant proteins, chlorophyll and vitamins, is a part of plant cells. Participates in a protective reaction when pathogenic microorganisms penetrate into plant tissues. Nitrogen is extremely important in the period of active growth of the green mass of the plant. It stimulates the development of new leaves and stems.



It is a source of energy in the cells of living organisms. Phosphorus is involved in the construction of many proteins. It is necessary for the proper formation of the root system and affects the flowering and fruiting. Balanced nutrition on phosphorus increases the resistance of plants to diseases.



Participates in the processes of synthesis of organic substances and carbohydrates. It supports the water regime necessary for the plant and provides nitrogen metabolism. It is potassium that contributes to the overall frost or drought resistance of plants, and the ripeness of the fruit.

Organic fertilizer сomposition

How is
it packed?

Our fertilizer is shipped in crumbly form. It can be used in greenhouses and on farm plots.

There are two ways of using fertilizer

It can be added into a hole during planting / plowing or make from it a water solution.

We provide a detailed instruction for the usage of our fertilizer, written by agronomists according to the chemical contents of the fertilizer and experience of its usage.

Summing up


Every agricultural producer faces a dilemma – what to do with waste. This actions required by ecological law and market.


In Russia 70% of waste – is stored or burned.
In Europe 70% of waste – is recycled.


European producers are ready to test numerous technologies for waste recycling as their termination – is a lost profit.


Waste – is material!


Our team develops a technology that helps to convert organic waste of agriculture into protein feeds and organic fertilizer.
