New Techniques To Turn Poultry Feather & Animal Hair To Fertiliser
Indian scientists have developed a new sustainable and affordable solution for converting keratin waste to fertilizers and animal feeds.
Animal hair, poultry feathers, and other keratin-containing waste are usually dumped, sometimes landfilled, and incinerated. This process is followed throughout the world. But such action leads to pollution of soil, water, and air. Such waste, like feathers, also causes many diseases in humans.
India too generates a huge amount of human hair, animal hair, poultry feather waste, and wood waste each year. These wastes increase environmental hazards, pollution, and pose a threat to public health, and also increase greenhouse gas emissions.
