Fondation de France supports water hyacinth processing


With support from the French Global Environment Facility (FFEM), ACED began in 2012 an initiative to process water hyacinth into compost in order to reduce the influence of this invasive plant on Lake Nokoué. This initiative has allowed the reduction of about 2,000 tonnes of water hyacinth and production of compost that is used by local farmers.
