The establishment of Biocycle creates new employment opportunities for the local community. The production of Black Soldier Fly (BSF) and its derivatives requires a workforce at various levels, ranging from BSF farmers, factory workers, to product delivery and office team. We help reduce the unemployment rate and provide economic stability for the local residents. By investing in our operation area, Biocycle stimulates local economic growth. This includes purchasing local raw materials, paying wages to local employees, and contributing taxes to the local government. This economic growth will have a broad positive impact on the surrounding community, including improved infrastructure and access to social services.
Biocycle initiates BSF/maggot cultivation as an efficient method for processing organic waste. These maggots consume organic waste and transform it into protein- rich products that can be used as livestock feed. This helps enhance the value of organic waste and provides high-quality feed to farmers. Additionally, Biocycle also provides and consistently develops environmentally friendly insect-based products. At Biocycle, these products can serve as alternative protein-rich animal feed, and other derivative products are processed into organic fertilizer beneficial for sustainable agriculture. With this approach, Biocycle not only reduces the impact of piled up organic waste but also utilize BSF larvae/maggots as valuable resources to support sustainable consumption and production. This initiative contributes to a cleaner environment, more productive agriculture, and greater food security for the future.
Our efforts to contribute to climate action is we democratize alternative protein sources to be more accessible, so that feed mill industries can have a sustain supplier for their feed ingredients. In the Biocycle system, we use vertical farming to reduce land use which often contributes to deforestation and climate change. We manage and process organic waste efficiently to mitigate the potential formation of methane, a greenhouse gas stronger than carbon dioxide.
The farming of Black Soldier Flies can improve marine ecosystem and can be carried out sustainably and. Black soldier fly larvae (maggots) can be bred using organic waste, such as agricultural waste, which can be generated continuously without disrupting the marine ecosystem. On the contrary, Biocycle supports sustainable aquaculture and livestock farming by providing alternative feed sources. This contrasts with current ingredients which often harm marine ecosystems and threaten the future of fish populations by overfishing to produce fishmeal. Replacing fishmeal with insect meal as a protein source can help reduce tension on marine ecosystem and allow them to recover its biodiversity. In this way, marine ecosystems can remain balanced and diverse, aiding in the protection of vulnerable marine species and maintaining a healthy marine ecosystem.
Over-using chemical fertilizers can contaminate groundwater and rivers with hazardous chemical residues. Meanwhile, organic fertilizers tend to reduce the risk of this pollution, mitigating negative impacts on land and aquatic ecosystems. Our organic fertilizers can reduce chemical fertilizer usage and have been proven to improve soil structure and increase the content of organic matter, namely Bestico Insect Frass rich in C-Organic, and Bestico Soil Booster rich in plant growth-promoting bacteria. Bestico products enhance soil resilience against erosion and allow it to more efficiently absorb and retain water. This reduces the need for excessive irrigation often required in conventional agriculture. Organic fertilizers provide more sustainable nutrition for plants in the long term. This can result in healthier and more pest- and disease-resistant crops. Moreover, it can improve agricultural yields and can also save costs on the use of chemical pesticides. Consistently using organic fertilizers can reduce farmers’ reliance on expensive chemical fertilizers, helping to save on agricultural financing costs in the long run. Organic farming promotes sustainable practices such as crop rotation, green manure, and better waste management. This helps maintain soil fertility and agricultural ecosystems in the long term, avoiding the soil degradation often seen in conventional farming.
Partnerships with govenrment, private sectors, institutions and non-governmental organizations can enhance a company’s access to the resources, knowledge, and technology required to achieve SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Partnerships also enable the exchange and execution of innovative ideas and solutions for environmental and social issues. Collaborating with various stakeholders expands Biocycle’s reach in creating a positive impact in the community and the environment. This may include training programs, education, and job opportunities that support decent work and sustainable economic growth. By working together with various stakeholders, Biocycle can strengthen social and environmental responsibility, which can ultimately enhance customer trust and investments.
