EnviroFlight LLC wins innovation award   




EnviroFlight LLC was declared the winner of the "DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture" at AquaVision 2016 held in Norway last June13-15.


The DSM Innovation Award in Aquaculture was created to reflect DSM's 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 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 award and a prize of EUR10,000 to EnviroFlight president and founder Glen Courtright (shown left in the photo) on June 15 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 multibillion-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.


Royal DSM is a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials.
