Starch from duckweed can be readily converted into ethanol using the same facilities currently used for corn, Cheng adds.
Duckweed presents an attractive, non-food alternative that has the potential to produce significantly more ethanol feedstock per acre than corn, exploit existing corn-based ethanol production processes for faster scale-up, and turn pollutants into a fuel production system.
Duckweed utilizes the nutrients in the wastewater for growth, thus capturing these nutrients and preventing their release into the environment.

Lemna minor, commonly known as duckweed and duckweed, an aquatic macrophyte is small vascular belonging to the family Lemnaceae.
To test the effect of the herbicide Calliofop 36 EC on the Elodea Canada and the duckweed Lemna minor, we chose the following doses, 0 (control), 35, 70, and 140[micro]g product with three replicates by treatment with 3 and 14 days.
