Idea Phase (15 January-3 April 2018)

From water lily fibers to various materials

The water lily (Eichhornia crassipes) is a very prolific aquatic plant worldwide. In aquatic ecosystems it replaces several species of native aquatic plants, and, therefore, it becomes a pest due to its high degree of adaptability to the physical-chemical conditions of the water where it lives. Its presence is associated with a high rate of evapotranspiration, blocking of light, contribution of detritus and reservoir ...more »

Idea Phase (15 January-3 April 2018)

Production of biogas, biofuels and soil improvers from water lily.

The quality of bodies of water such as rivers, lakes and lagoons can be affected by the discharge of domestic wastewater or those from agricultural and livestock activities, since these considerably increase the concentration of organic matter, nitrogen and phosphorus, which, act as nutrients, promote the excessive proliferation of algae and aquatic plants. This phenomenon is known as eutrophication. The accumulation ...more »
