The Circulars 2016 Finalist - AgriProtein Technologies South Africa

Summary: AgriProtein Technologies, a natural protein feed business based in South Africa, is spearheading the new industry of nutrient recycling by mimicking nature via insect-based technologies. AgriProtein Technologies helps divert 35,000 cubic meters per year of waste food from landfill, a saving that is crucial when considering new alternatives for high protein demand. Not only does the company provide an innovative and less expensive method for reducing waste in landfills, it also processes food waste, converting it into animal feed, oil, and organic fertilizer. The processes developed by AgriProtein Technologies allows for waste to be turned into usable products, replacing traditionally unsustainable protein farms and leading to environmental cost savings of over 112 million USD each year.
