EnvironFlight LLC wins the ‘DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture’ at AquaVision 2016

15 June 2016

AquaVision and DSM Nutritional Products (DSM) are delighted to announce EnviroFlight LLC is the winner of the ‘DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture’ at AquaVision 2016. 

The ‘DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture’ was created to reflect DSM’s unique history and dedication to provide industry leading micronutrient innovations in aquaculture worldwide as well as the role of AquaVision as a global forum to promote innovation in aquaculture. 

Applications for the ‘DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture’, an award that honours transformative innovation within the aquaculture industry, were received from across the world and evaluated by a jury of specialists. 

Christian Martin, Global Category Manager of Aquaculture at DSM Nutritional Products, presented the ‘DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture’ and a prize of EUR 10,000 to Glen Courtright, EnviroFlight’s President and Founder, today at AquaVision. 

Enviroflight has developed proprietary technologies that enable the rearing of non-pathogenic black soldier fly larvae in an industrially scalable manner.  This innovative and responsible approach has considerable potential within the multi-billion Euro aquaculture feed industry as it will provide an environmentally-friendly, toxin-free, and sustainable protein source.

Using black soldier fly larvae in this manner addresses two problems: food waste and feeding a growing global population.  EnviroFlight’s technology can be used to recover the nutrients from food waste streams that would otherwise go to landfill by converting them into products that can feed farmed aquatic and land-based animals.
