Chemical Free Animal Feed Made from Water Hyacinth
Water hyacinth has been a menace to residents living along the shores of Lake Victoria and depend on the lake for fishing. But one researcher has a solution to this nagging problem.

University’s of Nairobi’s Jack Omondi is using green chemistry and biotechnology to turn the stubborn water hyacinth into rich animal feeds.

To make the hyacinth feed, the process involves harvesting of the raw water hyacinth from the lake, cleaning it, homogenisation, melting, chelating and cooling.

A fully produced biofit (the substance that is produced when the hyacinth has been processed) is safe and healthy for animals to feed on owing to the rigorous production stages it undergoes. It is free of any synthetic hormones or boosters that are normally added to animal feeds during production.

Today, keeping nature functioning the way it did before the Industrial Revolution requires increasingly hard and expensive work.
