LAUREANNE KOOTSTRA – RUMINANT ME | 6. SEM SUSE 2016

What to do for the more than 10% of the worlds population – 800 million people – who suffer from a lack of food?

Cellulose is the world’s most abundant organic compund and is found in cell walls of almost every plant. Cows and other ruminant animals can digest it, unlike humans. Ruminant me is an external stomach to digest cellulose activated by a microbe-filled ball that moves around in it.
