Who we are

Bioflytech S.L. Is a Technology Based Company of the University of Alicante dedicated to scientific and technical development and research on artificial insect breeding related procedures and products.
The massive production of insect biomass allows its application in a wide range of industries such as animal feed, the agro-food by-products valuation, the waste biodegradation, as well as a wide range of biotechnological uses.
BioFlyTech was born in a research group of the University of Alicante, specialized in the artificial breeding of insects and in the associated applied research.
The awarding of several awards and recognitions served as a stimulus for the business development of the project as well as for the incorporation of other specialized teams in the scale of production or the social and commercial approach of the project.
BioFlyTech's main reason arises from the research group's desire to give back to society all that had been learned and researched.
Both motives are articulated as factors of interest for the development of this project, together with the possibility to apply, as a return to society, part of the research activity in continuous development of the research group. It is important to note that the awarding of several prizes prior to the constitution of BioFlyTech served as a stimulus and incentive for the implementation of the project.

1

Over the past 20 years, BioFlyTech has developed sufficient know-how to ensure massive larval production of three domesticable insect species. In particular, and given the EU legislation authorizing the use of insect protein as a component of feed in fish farms, we bet, in the first phase, on the larval biomass derived from the BSF.

The development perspectives of this new productive industry bring interesting returns in a circular economy that benefits all the members of the chain, with a huge contribution in value, hardly quantifiable in purely economic terms.

Sustainable

We are a sustainable company that produces natural proteins for aquaculture and animal feed in general.

Protein flour

From insect larvae biomass a flour with a high protein content is obtained

We recycle

We recycle waste and organic by-products that are discarded for optimum conversion into high value fertilizers

Experience

More than 20 years of research and 150 years of accumulated research support the raison d'être of BioFlyTech.
