Scientist Says Wood Chips Can Be Converted into Food

During the winter I burn wood so I was very interested to hear there is a professor from Virginia Tech, Y.H. Percival Zhang, who says he has  developed a process that will convert wood chips into food. Basically he made a giant stomach and mixed in corn stalks, weeds, leaves and grass with different types of enzymes to make food.

It is much more complicated than that though, Zhang says all planets everywhere consist of cellulose and in its raw form it is inedible, too course and not tasty and humans can’t digest it. If the molecules are broken down and converted it’s possible to make edible food.

He believes one day wood chip food will be served at restaurants and people will love the stuff. More importantly than that, he says his method has the potential to solve world hunger.
