6.4 Worm Farming facility

The worming facility can only run once there is enough food for the worms, meaning waste separation must already take place. Although it is not clear yet which actor will be responsible for the worm farming facility, implementation steps will be discussed in this section.

2018-2020 Prepare worming farming facility

Worm farming bins and ingredients need to be bought to start implementation in 2020. Further research is necessary to find optimal conditions.

2020-2025 Expand worming farming facility

When the collection bin is distributed, it is likely that the separation rate will increase and with that the worm feeding. When the amount of worms rises, the facility needs to grow. Once there are enough worms, worms can be used as feeding for fish and birds.

2022 Start to supply worms as feeding

Within two years it is likely that there are enough worms for reproduction, while worms are also used as feeding for fish and birds.

2025-2030 Research to the worm bio filter

Once enough experience is gained in worm production, research can be done on creating a bio-filter of worms. Since the idea already exists, it is likely that in 2025 more information on this is available and technology has become cheaper.

2025-2030 Prepare license and build infrastructure

At the same time a license is needed to implement the bio-filter and to build an infrastructure to filter water through a bio-filter.

2030-2032 Implement the bio filter

In 2030 the bio-filter can be implemented to filter the water, which can be used for irrigation or drink water for animals, depending on the quality of the water.

2032-2065 Expand bio filter facility

Once there are more worms and there is a constant reproduction, more filters can be placed to filter water for irrigation or water for feedstock.
