It’s that simple: Cow Dung to Fuels & Chemicals

Oldest Biorefineries used for Pretreatment of Lignocellulose: The Cows

Levulinic acid is a platform chemical with significant potential to substitute petroleum-based products in the chemical and fuel sectors.

In this particular research example, the lignocelluose was converted to bio-based chemicals after it was “pre-treated” (digested) by the cows. Have a look at this report by the researchers from the Agro-Environmental Protection Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences.
