Katz Biotech AG - Applied Insect Biotechnology

Welcome to the Insect Technology Center!

The potential of insects used in different areas like human consumption, horticultural or agricultural applications, as animal feed or raw material supplier for medicine or technical use are enormous. Efficient methods for the industrial use of insects as resource are significant to be marketable worldwide. The Katz Biotech AG is offering the whole beneficials product range mainly for the use inside greenhouses, but also for the agricultural sector. For more information visit our main homepage (www.katzbiotech.de).

Our R&D Team consist of entomologists, chemists and biologists, working in the area of applied insect technology. We are continually developing new methods for industrial mass rearing of specially chosen beneficials and mites, in particular, for biological crop protection, determination and extraction of mites - and insect ingredients, including contract research. Inside the competence center microencapsulation our chemists are investigating new innovative types of microcapsules. For instance, our unique liquid core capsule coated with a functional shell enables a highly efficient and innovative approach in the area of crop protection using the principle of "attract & kill" or for the internal use as food source in the mass rearing of insects, but the basic application is much more diverse.

Beside this we are investigating the usage of insects as protein rich source and renewable raw material as alternative to fishmeal and soy. Here we have a joint adventure with the Hermetia Group. The Hermetia Group is specialized on mass rearing of the Black Soldier Fly as renewable raw material and protein rich source, take a look on our poster presentation on the "9th Workshop on Fats and Oils as Renewable Feedstock for Chemical Industry" or visit the Hermetia Group main page (www.hermetia.de).
