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?
Not only is the linear economy model becoming obsolete, but it should be abandoned as a measure to combat overexploitation and exhaustion of resources. The linear economy model does not contemplate a reuse of resources, whilst 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 waste production so that more value is given to resources such as water, energy or raw materials in favour of sustainability.
What do we do at Tebrio?
In our case, we have a multi-disciplinary team of professionals working in a circular model where we use by-products of plant origin for our insects’ food, marketing all the products that are generated in our facilities, which results in zero waste.
This model allows us to reduce water use by almost 90% in comparison with other animal species and we do not need arable land to farm our insects. Therefore, we have a zero carbon footprint, barely any CO2 emissions and no methane or ammonia emissions.
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.
Let’s be more sustainable!
