BackgroundWater hyacinth (Eichhorniacrassipes) is one of the most uncompromising weeds in the whole world. Its adverse effects due to fast growth rate are main physical interference with fishing and navigation. Water hyacinth also causes eutrophication due to the large release of organic nutrients after its degradation, consequentially deterioration of water quality and also adversely affecting aquatic flora and fauna. Therefore, composting is one of the best methods for control and utilization…

BackgroundWater hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) can cause a diversity of problems due to its fast spread and congested growth. The composting of water hyacinth can reduce the chemical fertilizer

Compost preparation, chemical analyses and users’ perception in the utilization of water hyacinth, Ethiopia

Lake Tana is the largest freshwater body in Ethiopia. Currently, the lake has been facing alarming environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity due to the invasion of water hyacinth. Although

Effects of Aeration During Pile Composting of Water Hyacinth Operated at Agitated, Passive and Forced Aerated Condition

PurposeThe increasing invasion of water hyacinth is creating major environmental problems in water and after disposal also. Hence, composting of water hyacinth was studied for its degradation

Effects of Aeration During Pile Composting of Water Hyacinth Operated at Agitated, Passive and Forced Aerated Condition

The increasing invasion of water hyacinth is creating major environmental problems in water and after disposal also. Hence, composting of water hyacinth was studied for its degradation pattern. The
