Hear from expert speaker Dr Nathalie Berezina, about how insects could be utilised for a more sustainable future.


With over a million species documented to date, insects represent the highest biodiversity among eukaryotes. However, this biodiversity remains significantly underutilized by humans.

An insect biorefinery presents an opportunity for smart and rational exploitation of this resource, which is both abundant and largely unexplored. In parallel, the demand for new products and sources of nutrients is on the rise. This need is driven by the increasing global population, improved living standards, and the need for the efficient use of resources.

Alongside a PhD in Biotechnology and MSc in Chemistry & Chemical Engineering, our speaker Dr Berezina also possesses 15 years of international experience within bioplastic and insect industries.
