As indicated by NTV television, they started their project in the year 2020 and finally made a breakthrough this year.
The four tried converting cellulose which is abundant in grass from one chemical form to another making it safe for human consumption.
The source further indicated that they opted for grass as their raw material for the project because it is readily available as it covers almost 60% of the land's surface area.
Specifically, they used Bermuda grass and Rye grass and managed to convert it into edible starch that has produced flour which can be used to make Ugali and porridge.
