New invention uses microbes to breakdown waste into valuable resources

It is possible to treat waste at the source and also make it reusable for agricultural purposes. The trick is using specialized bacteria, whose metabolic activities can convert simpler chemicals into valuable products through a microbial growth process.

Are insect feeds the future of the animal feed industry?

A better deal for Gum Arabic producers in Northern Kenya

The dry and rugged terrain stretching for kilometers in the expansive Isiolo County appears largely barren, worthless even. Yet growing from the parched earth is a resource worth billions of shillings and one that promises to significantly transform the lives of the largely poor pastoralist communities of Northern Kenya. The blistering weather conditions of Isiolo

Insect entrepreneur training farmers how to use maggots on their farms

In a quiet, mainly residential area in Kirinyaga, trays of writhing Black Soldier Flies (BSFs) larvae munch their way through hundreds of kilograms of food and farm waste a day. By converting organic waste into protein, this miracle insect helps lower Carbon emissions and replace environmentally damaging fertilizers. The protein-rich maggots are sold for pet

Food index report: Tackling food waste for environmental sustainability

Globally, food waste has become an increasingly recognized environmental issue over the last decade. In a world where approximately 800 million people suffer from hunger, food waste is not only an ethical issue but also an environmental problem that cannot be overlooked. In a recent report by the United Nations Environment Programme (Food Index Report

Fast fashion: An environmental disaster

The fashion industry has been rapidly growing. In the last 15 years alone, clothing production has doubled, accounting for 60% of all the textile production. The Green America’s Toxic textile report states that the textile industry alone produces 1.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year and accounts for around 20 percent of global industrial
