Paper from cow dung

After elephant dung now cow dung can be converted into  paper

The Sunderbans in West Bengal are set to get electricity generated from cow dung. This Ganesh Chaturthi, many families across India brought home idols made from cow dung. Punjab went a step further and used it to deliver piped biogas to various houses in a village. These instances are an apt example of how cow dung was utilised as a resource, rather than a waste product. Taking a cue from the states mentioned above, a handmade paper institute in Rajasthan also decided to join the bandwagon.

The Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Institute (KNHPI) mixed cow dung with rag paper and made handmade paper. Not only does this utilise waste into making something beneficial, but the process also generates income for farmers and gives employment opportunity to several workers.

Otaram Devasi, the minister of Gopalan department in Rajasthan, told, “One gaushala has started making paper in Jalore. Our department always encourages gaushalas to contribute to the state economy through various cow produce.”
