Over the last few months we have deliver a plastic housing with a heat exchanger to madebymade. After working out the specifications together, Inno+ supplied a number of trial models. This resulted in a standard design that fits perfectly with the modular structure of the madebymade shipping containers. The climate cork, as it is called at madebymade, is ideal for climate control of the shipping containers or insect larvae.
With this collaboration, both madebymade and Inno+ aim to make a positive contribution to the demand for animal proteins. This is expected to dramatically increase by 2050 compared to 2007, due to population growth combined with higher meat consumption. Already today at least 70% of agricultural land is used for animal feed production, which will inevitably lead to feed shortages due to the increasing demand for protein. Insects as an alternative source of protein can fill this gap. Feed tests have shown that proteins from insects can replace conventional protein sources such as soy meal and fishmeal. Increasing demand for fishmeal and soy has contributed to overfishing and loss of biodiversity.
With the breeding and reproduction of the black soldier fly, madebymade is making an important contribution to a sustainable and resource-saving circular economy to which Inno+ would also like to contribute. As such, both companies envisage a profitable partnership in the foreseeable future.
