    There are quite a few controversial pieces of information on the direct emissions of insects. Some of the literature sources point to very high impacts, while other almost neglect them. I think this is a good topic, very relevant to the environmental impact of insect production to discuss. What is the truth? Do insect emit gasses? Which gasses? Which insects?

    We are looking into that at the moment. Currently fairly basic to assess and establish a baseline. The first results will be presented at EAAP in Lyon.
