Bioconversione di scarti mediata dalla mosca soldato - Residues bioconversion mediated by Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens L.)

Bioconversione di scarti mediata dalla mosca soldato - Residues bioconversion mediated by Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens L.)

The HERMES project is granted by Lazio Innova within the POR FESR Lazio 2014 funds and born from a collaboration between CREA and ENEA. The overall objective is the development of a sustainable technology for the bioconversion of residual biomass through the saprophagous activity of the dipteran Hermetia illucens (black soldier fly, BSF). H. illucens degrades organic matrices, producing the residue that can be used as a soil conditioner and the larval biomass as source of biomolecules. The CORS (Conversion of Organic Refuse by Saprophages) technology mediated by the BSF is an important system and product innovation that can contribute significantly to the development of bio-based supply chains.

Enrico Santangelo
Graduate in agricultural sciences, has been involved in research activities with several centres (University of Tuscia, Enea, Agrital, CREA) carrying out both laboratory studies and field trials on different species (tomato, wheat, leguminous and no-food species). Presently, researcher at the Research Centre for Engineering and Agri-Food Processing at CREA (Monterotondo, Roma), where he has been working since 2011 on issues related to: storage of woody and herbaceous biomass; evaluation of prototypes for the collection of biomasses; recovery and use of agricultural residues; characterisation and study of biochar from different sources; sustainable agriculture; precision agriculture.


Silvia Arnone
Graduate in agricultural sciences, she is a researcher at the Bioenergy, Biorefinery and Green Chemistry Division of ENEA (Research Centre Casaccia, Rome) where she has been working since 1988. She has experience in field and laboratory tests for evaluating insect-plant interactions, with the aim to identify eco-sustainable strategies for controlling insect pests. For several years she has been involved in activities related to the application of the Sterile Insect Technique. More recently she has been involved in field cultivation of topinambur for an agronomic evaluation as an energy crop. At present, she is following research activities for the development of a bioconversion process of organic wastes and by-products with the saprophagous mediated by black soldier fly, on laboratory and pilot scale.
