Dungse / cow-dung composites

Dungse is a range of new material composites made out of cow dung with properties similar to traditional materials like wood, concrete, wool and plastic. Dungse uses 50-80% cow dung mixed with numerous biobased materials to make circular and efficient material composites.
Dungse is currently being incubated in India through a decentralised rural entrepreneurship model for decentralised production and through an Indigenous Future Innovations research Lab in The Netherlands. We envision building a future that is conducive to all forms of live, while creating meaningful products that's last.
