UW-Madison CALS Research Finds That Cow Rumens Could be Harnessed to Process Biofuel

Researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences have found that natural bacteria in cow rumens could be extremely helpful in biofuel production. According to UW-Madison CALS expert bacteriology professor Garret Suen, the microbes found in cow rumens have evolved to break down cellulose from the plants they eat efficiently and effectively. This has been a key challenge in biofuel production, and harnessing this natural process could be invaluable in industrial applications.
