BERMUDEZ-SERRANO, Ileana Maricruz  y  SANCHEZ-VELAZQUEZ, Oscar Abel. Comprehensive utilization of the Black Soldier Fly: Bioconversion, sustainability, and emerging challenges. Scientia Agropecuaria [online]. 2023, vol.14, n.4, pp.571-590.  Epub 14-Nov-2023. ISSN 2077-9917.

The black soldier fly (BSF) has garnered the attention of the scientific community due to its outstanding efficiency in transforming organic waste into raw materials that can be incorporated into the value chain. A bibliometric and bibliographic review was conducted to elucidate the pivotal role played by the bioconversion of organic matter in shaping sustainable circular economy systems. The analysis revealed that black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) have proven effective in the bioconversion of common waste, such as household and livestock waste, yielding valuable biomass. Despite these advancements, the exploration of new sources of organic matter persists to mitigate its environmental impact. Emerging technologies enable the efficient processing of BSFL biomass, yielding substitutes for environmentally unfriendly materials. Although the literature emphasizes the advantages of BSF in constructing circular economy models, obstacles such as limited legislation and insufficient incentives for producers, concerns about pathogens and contaminants, and low public acceptance of this species are identified. However, the growing trend in scientific interest suggests that BSF could play a central role in building sustainable societies in the future.

Palabras clave : black soldier fly; Hermetia illucens; circular economy; sustainability; bioconversion; use of waste.
