This extremely invasive plant is a major environmental concern in many countries. But this firm is actually trying to put its properties to good use...

    the plants apparently also filter nitrates out of water (polluted particularly by agriculture)

    Each and everything given by nature is a blessing. Problem is in finding it out , and put to use.

    These plants literally absorb garbage with their roots wtf. Water hyacinths can be found everywhere and they only grow in a stuck water basin, somewhere water can't flow.

    It has become a problem in India too. But as you have reported, we can use it in numerous useful products if no corruption is involved. Govt must take steps for this immediaely because it shall provide employment on large scale to the needy n poor untrained persons.

    The plant can be turned into fertilizer. It is also call duck weed as the bulb can be chopped up to feed ducks.
