Environmental, social and economic impact
In Africa, waste collection is a real challenge for urban and peri urban areas. About 30% of waste in Africa and 38%Kenya is uncollected due to population growth, costs associated with waste disposal and lack of necessary infrastructure. Important to note is the enormous amount of waste in African cities is organic waste, over 50% in many places. When organic waste goes to a landfill it releases serious amounts of methane, a very harmful greenhouse gas. According to the UN, rotting food waste accounts for 7% of the global greenhouse gas emissions.
Ecodudu is carefully generating economic value for itself in a way that simultaneously produces value for society by addressing social and environmental challenges by utilizing the black soldier fly to deal with these problems in a more sustainable and cost-effective way.“The future of feed, as the demand for sustainably produced animal feed and pet food increases, insects will play a key role in providing quality nutrients while minimizing environmental impact. The UN agrees”
Ecodudu is a waste-to-value company. We use data driven analytics to recycle organic waste into high-protein animal feed and organic fertilizer using the black soldier fly. We harness insects (nature’s recycling agents) to address global issues which include waste management, demand for protein and environmental conservation.
