6 1.1 Problems -- Geographical Areas Under Attack
7 1.1 Problems -- Problems of Control Survivability of the Plant –Propagates in three ways Any cutting from the plant takes root and grows Shoots a “runner” and begins a new plant Self-pollinates if insects do not –Seeds may number as many as 45 million per acre –Seeds can lay dormant for 15 years –Easily adapts to terrestrial environments –Now adapting to colder and colder climates –Fully grown in 6 weeks –Doubles area of coverage every five days Three (3) Means to Eradicate and Control –Chemical -- Reasons that chemically treating the Water Hyacinth is ineffective: temporary counter productive does more harm than good –Biological -- Importing Water Hyacinth eating insects is ineffective because: These creatures become uncontrollable Insects may cause other problems Other means must be used to eradicate and control the insects –Mechanical Harvesting -- Mechanical harvesting is good and bad Good: areas that are repeatedly cleared slow the growth of the plant as it becomes “tame” Bad: creates large amounts of bio-waste material
8 1.2From Eradication to Use -- Mission: Turn the Water Hyacinth problem into a blessing. Photo Copied with Permission from the University of Florida
9 1.2From Eradication to Use -- Solutions and Goals Humanitarian Goal #1 1Create Low Cost Housing For the Needy –The Water Hyacinth plant is a low cost (50 to 75 percent less cost) and highly available source for building material such as: Particle board Cork-type board Insulation Acoustic board Humanitarian Goal #2 2Provide Medical Supplies and/or Medical Facilities –The Water Hyacinth plant is a source for a large number of raw materials for medical applications and treatments Humanitarian Goal #3 3Provide for the Nutritional Requirements of the Needy –The Water Hyacinth plant is a low cost and highly available source of food for both humans and domestic animals –The Water Hyacinth plant is a source of many vitamins and minerals: Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins A, E & B, pyroxidine HCI (B6), pantothenic acid, calcium iron, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, copper, sodium, potassium and sulfur.
10 1.2From Eradication to Use -- Solutions and Goals, Continued Humanitarian Goal #3, Continued 3.Provide for the Nutritional Requirements of the Needy –The Water Hyacinth is a good source of protein and amino acids lysine, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, valine, and arginine –It would be easy to improve diets of rice, wheat and corn by adding the plant’s protein extracts, thus raising the protein level to over 30%, making bread a balanced diet –Eliminate diseases caused by lack of proper nutrition In India, “kwashiorkor” is caused primarily by protein malnutrition Also in India, “marasmic-kwashiorkor” is caused by the lack of Vitamins A & B, iron, and proteins The Water Hyacinth contains the essentials for healthy growth, eyes and skin. Humanitarian Goal #4 4.Help Provide Education –The industries surrounding the Water Hyacinth plant will help fund educational programs –Much low and high tech training will be required for individuals to be employed by the supporting industries –The business goals include creating a learning organization for the work force To build technically competent workers To build leaders and managers from the pool of employees
11 Educational Vision Ultimate Earth/Non-Waste Tech. seeks to use technology to solve one of the world’s problems that hinder economic growth. In so doing, the people in poorer areas will have the opportunity to lift themselves from abject poverty and to participate in a rewarding way in the global economy. The Project will be designed to spawn an industry that will continue to grow with the development of new products and processes. In order for the Project to have the desired positive impact, management and employees of the processing plants and cottage industries developed must act in accordance with the highest standards of equitable and ethical practice, the best business practices and exhibit an ongoing concern for the highest human rights applications. Sample of Management Courses The Enterprise Management Model: Guide to Establishing, Managing and Improving the Organization Employees as Assets: Selection, encouraging and development of employees The Team Based Approach to Management Marketing Unique Products Suppliers, Customers and Employees as Team Members Production Planning and Scheduling Purchasing and Warehouse Management Applied Chemical Processes Computer Communications Project Management Sample of Technician/Engineering Courses Applied Chemical Processes, Theory and Practice Statistical Quality Control Work Methods and Measurement Facilities Layout Computer Programming, Software and Maintenance Employee/Technician Courses Water Hyacinth Project and Processes The Company Operating Principles and Practices Communicating in the Company Employees on the Team, in the Company Humanitarian Goal #4 -- Help Provide Education Example of Employee Development Program
12 1.2From Eradication to Use -- Solutions and Goals, Continued Humanitarian Goal #5 5. Creation of New Employment –The employment opportunities are huge. The Water Hyacinth plant is a low cost and highly available source for many products, including food, medicine, housing products, clothing products, environmental restoration methods, and others. –Employment of hundreds of native peoples initially –Hundreds if not thousands of employees will be added as more processes are implemented –Each product requires a workforce to perform many jobs: Harvesting wild plants Cultivating and harvesting medical and food grade domestic plants Preparing the plants for processing Processing of the plant into many different products Transporting many different products and raw materials Supporting related industry jobs –Solution to waterway problems alone creates jobs Harvesting wild plants serves two purposes –Raw material for the industries created –Removal of a problem plant that cost millions of dollars each year in attempting eradication
13 1.2From Eradication to Use -- Solutions and Goals, Continued Additional Health Related Environmental Goals –Elimination of the natural impacts due to the plant itself –Elimination of environmental impacts due to efforts of control –Use of plant to treat waste water Other Business Goals –To use the Water Hyacinth plant to create A strong business opportunity for the local people Create a force to empower humanitarian efforts To create good news To develop a family of companies that will be independent yet supportive of each other To create an employee-owned “organic” (not mechanistic) business that will perpetually support the people who work for the company as well as the community that surrounds it To develop a set of industries that will use the Water Hyacinth plant in a number of ways To generate income that will change the lives of people and can be used as seed money to expand the scope of the business to include other worthy business ventures
List of Products 42 Different Initial Products Natural protein, vitamin, and mineral products Human foods Domestic animal foods Currency grade paper pulp Textile fiber (second only to cotton at 1/2 the cost) Four different kinds of anti-bacterial solution Non-toxic insecticides Non-toxic food preservatives (at 1/2 the cost) Medicinal alcohol Wine Bases for cosmetics Particle, acoustic and cork boards Feminine pads Many others
15 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Currently raw materials for paper, protein and beta carotene (Vitamin A), as well as other products that can be created from the Water Hyacinth liquid, are expensive and hard to come by. In the case of paper these materials are at risk of depletion. The Water Hyacinth can easily and inexpensively be used to produce these materials. To fully grasp the Hyacinth’s potential for economic utilization, we must first understand the plant itself. The Water Hyacinth is fully matured, ready to procreate in 28 days, its leaves and stems are tender and rich in protein and vitamins. As the plant ages, the more sinewy and fibrous it becomes. The older the plant, the more fiber it contains. It is not that the plant has one property or the other, but rather, the proportions of its properties tilt as the plant ages. For example, a young plant may contain 50% protein while an older plant may only contain 35%. The same goes for fiber -- a young plant contains digestible fiber and an older plant’s fiber is too tough to be digestible and therefore can be used for durable goods. It takes at least 6 to 10 years before the average tree has grown sufficiently to be logged for the manufacture of paper pulp. In contrast, it takes a Water Hyacinth only 6 months to reach that same stage of development before it can be made into the Monsod Fiber. That fiber can then be used for a multitude of paper products, all requiring a minimum amount of processing and chemicals to arrive at a quality paper pulp at ¼ the cost of wood pulp. That is a 75% cost savings without even considering the environmental and ecological advantages. The Monsod Fiber is particularly known for its long fiber quality, strength and absorbency. Its use for “specialty paper” has been validated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), USA, Printing Industries Research Association (PIRA), England and more recently by Hokuetsu Paper Manufacturing, Japan. It has already been tested and accepted for such products as bank note and currency-grade paper, admission tickets (requiring the same high degree of flexibility as currency), bond papers, an additive to recycled papers, filters, feminine napkins 3, and disposable baby diapers. The Water Hyacinth Monsod Fiber does not stop here. It can also be spun into threads with the same basic qualities as cotton, with the exception that it requires inexpensive and biodegradable chemicals for bleaching and dying. Its long fibers are also desirable for blending with other low-grade fibers for added durability and dyeability, giving new life to such fibers as the very beautiful and delicate piña fiber. The site or location of the Hyacinth also determines the amount and quality of the properties that may be obtained from the plant depending upon the supply of nutrients. For instance, Hyacinth that is growing near a chemical waste site could be used for particleboard or paper, but would not be appropriate as an animal feed additive. Likewise, Hyacinth that is processed for human consumption can be grown in culturing ponds where they can be closely monitored.
16 As Dr. Monsod contends, “There is enough Water Hyacinth in Calcutta to feed all of India, and enough Hyacinth in India to feed all of Asia.” He is able to make this claim because of his patented and proven processes for extrapolating proteins (and its amino acids) and vitamins from the Hyacinth. The Water Hyacinth protein extract (45% average) and its amino acid composition compare with that of soybean and cottonseed. A diet consisting mainly of wheat or protein deficient rice or white corn in developing countries could be enriched by eight essential amino acids - lysine, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, valine, and arginine - by the simple addition of Water Hyacinth protein. The protein flour made from Hyacinth was also assayed for carotene content and found to contain 74.0 micrograms of carotene per gram; equivalent to 123 I.U. of Vitamin A per gram. Lack of Vitamin A is the leading cause of blindness in children under age 6. Not to be excluded are the recent findings of cancer fighting agents in beta-carotene. The world demand for organic sources of vitamins and minerals such as thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin E, pathothenic acid, pyroxidine HCL (Vitamin B-6), Vitamin B and minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, copper, sodium, potassium, and sulfur is staggering. These vitamins and minerals are all present in the Hyacinth and in many cases the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found them to meet or exceed the FAO’s recommended daily allowance. This fact has also been validated in studies done by NASA. PRODUCT DISCRIPTION, Continued Further, Dr. Monsod found the healing properties of the Water Hyacinth to be that of the widely used Aloe Vera plant. It is feasible that the extraction of these vitamins, minerals and proteins could alleviate the suffering of undernourished people in Asia, Africa, and Latin America and finally bring an end to chronic persistent hunger. The list of products does not stop here. The Hyacinth can be used to produce building materials such as particle board, cork board and insulation; non-toxic insecticides such as contact mosquito repellent and coils; animal feeds and additives for pets, livestock, fish and poultry; low-cost antibiotics, salves and creams; preservatives for food; a non-toxic formaldehyde replacement; and even wines and alcohol. The most recent break-through has been the synthesis of an organic, biodegradable, paper product, displaying Styrofoam-like properties and distilled water from the water extract. The products mentioned are not just theory or conjecture. Dr. Monsod has actually produced commercial samples of each one and more. The most wonderful aspect of Dr. Monsod’s non- waste approach to the Hyacinth is that these products are not exclusive and separate from each other, requiring separate locations with separate facilities, but rather are an integrated process using the waste of one product to create another.

39 THE MONSOD STORY Dr. Monsod, was actively involved in manufacturing a product of his own creation when the ever-present Water Hyacinth physically intruded upon his life. He was on a weekend golfing excursion on a local “island” country club when the trip had to be cancelled because the boat could not get to the dock through the mats of Water Hyacinth. A fellow businessman offhandedly suggested that he should figure out something to do with this nuisance weed since he was an inventor and there were so many of them. That did it. From that day forth, he was haunted by and committed to finding a use for the Water Hyacinth. As a legislative writer for cottage industries, Dr. Monsod was always on the lookout for business ventures that fell into that category. He was also very aware of the social, economic and political plight that his people were enduring with runaway inflation and a darkening political climate. If there was something that could be done with the Hyacinth, it could be the saving grace for his country since there was a free and abundant supply of this resource. Possessed with a brilliant mind, gut instinct, blind faith and the tools of scientific research and methodology, he took it one step at a time. First, he studied the anatomy of the plant and discovered that it had six very separate and distinct parts, all with different properties and chemical makeup: the stem, stolon, root, leaves, flower, and the liquid content. He determined what those properties and chemicals ~Were for each part of the plant and then went to work developing them into the products or raw materials that required or contained the same substances. Once his first product was chosen, it was time to extract from the Hyacinth the substances that were required to make it. Then he realized he had “leftovers.” Not wanting to waste or pollute, he decided that if his process had worked once, it could work again with the waste products. So he started the process all over, assessing the properties and chemical makeup of his leftovers, once again developing products that required or contained those same substances; ergo, his integrated Water Hyacinth non-waste processing (the “Monsod Process”) - making products out of byproducts, by-products out of by-products and so on. Dr. Monsod’s greatest advantage in discovering this new technology was that he did not know anything about the Water Hyacinth going in. He had to start with the basics and let the Hyacinth teach him. June has often said that if he had known how to make paper before his attempts with the Hyacinth or if he had read any of the failed attempts by other researchers and scientists, who had done extensive work in this field and repeatedly failed, he would have never have continued his paper-making efforts that have yielded one of the highest grade fibers for paper in the world.
