The model is based on the industrial application of Hermetia illucens (black soldier fly) as a converter of organic matter. This species has been selected for its high conversion capacity, for being an efficient converter of a great variety of waste of different kinds, for allowing its industrial production at very high densities, and for not being considered a pest or an insect that could have an impact negative in the environment. Given the great variety of raw materials that can be used as growth substrate for the black soldier fly and taking into account the legislative particularities, we have established two areas: valorization and reduction. In the valorization of the waste, the objective is the generation of diverse products with added value, starting from waste, and using insects as biofactories. In the waste volume reduction model, the approximation is similar to the valuation model, but underlining that the objective is the reduction of the waste taking advantage of the insect's conversion capacity, and not the generation of products with high added value. In this model we would select waste as manure from livestock (with special interest in poultry manure), slurry, sludge from WWTP, digestates, etc. This waste poses a continuous problem not only for the producers of this waste, but also for the managers that must collect and process them.
