Commonly, wood, electricity or LPG gas is used for cremation purpose. In India, people mostly prefer traditional products for cremation e.g. wooden logs and dried cow dung logs. As compared to fire wood and other alternatives, cremation using cow dung logs cost less.

Almost 400kg of wood is required for every single one of its seven million cremations, which caused deforestation resulting in global warming. Hence, a machine is invented called Cow dung log machine which makes wood logs from cow dung.

How are wooden logs made from Dung?

Blend of dung and straw (or any agro waste/harvested crop residues) is fed into the hopper of the machine. The machine has been provided with Screw mechanism, which helps in mixing raw materials thoroughly, compress them and extrude them out. We can make different size and shape of logs by using different size of die. The logs which are produced are then put under the sunlight to dry out the moisture inside them, making them hard and sturdy like wood. This machine can prepare one kg of wood in 15 seconds and will be sold at Rs 600-700 per quintal. A large number of trees are cut to get wood for the funeral, which damages the environment and also produces more smoke.
