Effect of Environmental Parameters on the Treatment of Human Fecal Waste by Black Soldier Fly Larvae

This project aims at refining a biological-agent based technology to understand the optimal conditions needed for its efficient use in India. It aims to use Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) to consume the human fecal matter and other bodily wastes. The team will test the optimal environmental conditions, in terms of temperature and humidity, for Black Soldier Fly larvae (BSFL) to reduce the amount of human feces in waste septage.
