MYIA SA is a start-up company founded in 2018 that breeds and processes the Black Soldier Fly insect in order to bio-convert organic waste and obtain products such as protein meal, oil, frass and chitin. All products have high biological and economic value and can be placed in the feed, agriculture and pharmaceutical sectors. Finally, the use of waste raw material and the bioconversion activity carried out by the Black Soldier Fly is strategic for the transition from a linear to a circular economy and, also thanks to this element, the entrepreneurial project was evaluated positively by the Boldbrain jury in 2018, which awarded the idea third place.
Thereafter, the start-up company availed itself of the collaboration of the USI start-up centre, coaching from Innosuisse and initiated important research projects with Eawag – part of ETH, with the University of Eastern Piedmont and the company Tecnofilati as part of the European project Eurostars and with SUPSI.
At the end of 2021, the company was on the way to an expansion phase thanks to the automation of the production line in the Biasca plant (3,500 square metres) and an expansion plan to open bioconversion facilities throughout Switzerland in the coming years.
