Katz Biotech AG - Applied Insect Biotechnology

Welcome to the Insect Technology Center!

The use of insects in different fields such as agriculture, animal feed, human food and medicine is enormous. The Katz Biotech AG is offering research services on a wide range of beneficial organisms which mainly are used in greenhouses.  For more information visit our main homepage (www.katzbiotech.de).

Our Research & Development (R&D) team is composed of entomologists, biologists, chemists and engineers working in the field of applied insect technology. We are focused on developing new methods for mass rearing beneficial organisms used mainly for biological pest control. In addition, we are identifying and extracting mite (insect) by-products.

In our chemistry department, our team is developing new   types of capsules used in mass rearing of insects, attract and kill systems and food industry (not going for pharma). For instance, our new liquid core capsule coated with a functional shell enables a highly efficient and innovative approach for biological pest control. For more information visit our research area.

Together with Hermetia Group we are searching for alternative methods for extraction of proteins and lipids used in aquaculture and poultry as feed. The Hermetia Group is specialized on mass rearing the Black Soldier Fly as a source of a renewable raw protein source. For more details check our poster presentation showed on the “9th Workshop on Fats and Oils as Renewable Feedstock for Chemical Industry" or visit the Hermetia homepage (www.hermetia.de).
