Why do we work towards a circular economy model? It is pretty simple; This is due to our commitment to the environment and to sustainability.

At Tebrio, we have become leaders, in part, because of our unique processes that allow us to develop a circular economy model that is respectful to the environment and sustainable.

Our unique production processes are one of the key components that allow us not only to breed and transform insects for their different uses in food, plant nutrition and other industrial and non-industrial uses, but to do so through a circular economy model.

 

What does it mean to work based on a circular economy model?

The linear economy model is not only becoming obsolete, but it must also be left behind as a measure to combat overexploitation and depletion of resources. The linear economy model does not contemplate a reuse of resources, while the circular economy is based on the principle of closing the life cycle of products, services, waste, materials, water and energy.

This principle involves aspects such as reuse and recycling to limit the production of waste so that more value is given to resources such as water, energy or raw materials in favor of sustainability.

 

What do we do in Tebrio?

In our case, we have a team of professionals working on a circular model in which we use by-products of vegetable origin to feed our insects, and also commercializing all the products that are generated in our facilities, which results in 0 waste.

This model allows us to reduce water use by almost 90% compared to other animal species and we do not need arable land to breed our insects, therefore, our carbon footprint is zero, we hardly create any CO² emissions and we don’t emit neither methane nor ammonia.

Our commitment is to be more efficient in the use of resources to move towards a more sustainable model, both in processes and in production, without harming the environment and trying to reestablish the global natural balance using sustainable industrial solutions based on insects.
