Making Fertiliser in Kolkata - 17 Feb 2014
Images from a factory in Kolkata where workers make fertiliser ingredients out of scrap leather by extracting wet blue leather and recovering a solid collagen-material containing high nitrogen levels, which can be used for the production of nitrogenous fertiliser.

India’s import of nitrogenous fertilizer, “urea”, has been rising as farmers are demanding more to boost yields of staples such as rice and wheat.
