I am looking for an NGO and/or commercial partner to develop a duckweed-based wastewater treatment system that includes harvesting of plant biomass produced and transformation into livestock feed. My research group is a leader in Europe in phytoremediation using duckweed and quality biomass production. The idea for my project is to find a source of wastewater (urban or fish farm, important not containing metals)where duckweed can be grown in order to clean the water and produce a biomass that can be used to produce a livestock feed (fish or poultry). I need a Non EU PRIMA partner that can help me to set up the system and promote the new livestock among local farmers.
