SFly is mastering the industrial production (SFactory) of the bioconversion and chemical extraction process to produce chitin/chitosan from Black Soldier Fly insect. We plan the first production tool to be installed in France and fully operational by 2018. This facility will be installed in the Rhone Valley (Rhone Alpes region) on the Inspira cluster, where our development is foreseen.
