Aligarh, Jan 5 (IANS) India can earn more than $50 billion by exporting value added pet food to the global market by recycling slaughter house waste products, an official said here Saturday.

The country can earn $50 billion by pet food to the global market by recycling slaughter house waste products, he said.
Slaughter house wastes were seen as a major source of pollution in cities. But experts now feel if they are recycled as feed for animals, it could be a profitable industry.
