Waste treatment chamber with insects in a processing plant of different industries of the food sector whose purpose is to obtain by-products for different purposes. This process of producing a vermicompost from organic matter consists of three phases: preprocessing, treatment, extraction or harvest.
It is the phase II of treatment, which involves the design of the object of study of Metrica6. The proposal refers to one of the processes for obtaining organic material from industrial waste from the food or agriculture sector. In the treatment zone is where the diptera, in the larval phase, are stored for 14 days, in boxes with a substrate composed of organic material and other processed waste, which feed these insects. During this period, the nutrition of the insects derives in the generation of vermicompost, as a combination of the food substrate and the excrements produced, which can later be used to fertilize agricultural soils. In addition to this by-product obtained by separation of the substrate and the insect, it is assumed that the insects that will result in other by-products from the larvae in their pre-pupa phase will be used for other applications, for example for cattle feed, biodiesel generation, etc., and another part for the regeneration of the colony.
This design basically consists of a closed and isolated treatment chamber, with controlled climatological conditions that allow the transformation process to be carried out under the most optimal conditions possible, with the aim of maximising the efficiency of this process.
