1. Energy efficiency: A biogas plant produces heat as a by-product, which often cannot be sensibly used for 100%. By using this waste heat for insect breeding, energy efficiency is significantly improved.
2. Sustainability: Using renewable energy such as biogas to generate heat for insect farming is more environmentally friendly than using fossil fuels.
3. Cost Savings: Using heat from a biogas plant can result in cost savings when heating insect farming facilities as the need for external heating sources is greatly reduced.
4. Circular economy: The use of waste heat from a biogas plant for insect breeding helps to close cycles, since waste products from the biogas plant can be used to generate heat for insect breeding.
