Here, I just copy and paste the response regarding the article Camels’ Manure~From Waste to a Worthwhile Farming Agent in the ensuing lines. These responses were received through my email.
Response from Mongolia,
We are interested in your entitled “Looking for ways to turn camel manure into a worthwhile asset”. In Mongolia rearing population nucleus of Bactrian camel’s (two-humped) in the World. So the camels producing thousands of tons of camel manure annually too. However, camels producing moisture and liquid manure in spring and summer at reverse, stiff and globular shaped in autumn and winter seasons. The dried camel manure is used to fuel traditionally in Mongolia because 100 kg dried globular shaped camel manure is equaled by the capacity of heat with 82 kg weather-beaten zag (Haloxylon bungee-it is a very important plant species which is fed by camels) and 129 kg horse manure. It can’t make organic fertilizer/compost, but this may be the source of electricity and will come into use the soil fertility of its ash.
We’d like to collaborate with your Camel4Life foundation.

The other environmentally friendly option would be biogas production, this has twin benefits of green renewable energy production and value addition of farm waste. At a farm you can become self-sufficient on energy, creating a closed system with minimum environmental impacts, going towards climate change mitigation.

Response from CVRL Dubai, UAE; Definitively camel dung is a great product and we use it at CVRL already for many years as fertilizer for our bushes and trees. I and some other people from the lab use it for their gardens at home. Important is that you have to grind the balls and that is often an obstacle for its wider use.

From Bangladesh; Assalamu alaikum, Excellent idea, anaerobic digestion of manure followed by market-oriented value additions to manure and bio-slurry is the answer, you have to assess raw material supply side; how many farms produce thousand tons of manure in what period of time, and how market demand support your processing cost? Jajakallah

Camel manure is as good as sheep and chicken manure but camels like goats kill weed seeds in their gut. It is high in ccalcium and ammonium.
I collect mine from a shed where the camels camp at night. No problem with the balls as the camels lying on them pulverise them and you have a beautiful powdered manure.
I sell it to vegetable gardeners who keep coming back. Grows magnificent coriander.
Yes, that is the additional benefit of camel manure. Camels’ rumen microflora is very effective and diverse in nature. In one study, it was found when the camel and cattle was grazed in the same area, the microfloral diversity of the cow rumen also improved and also the daily growth rate
