Speaking before the Mayfield, KY Rotary Club this past week. Fakhoorian described her company's unique offerings of aquatic-based, nutritious duckweed formulations for an variety of patent-pending pet food treats, supplements, and foods. Product roll-out is expected in late November of this year.

Fakhoorian’s vision for her company began five years ago while doing research on aquatic species for bioenergy. She immediately realized the benefits of what many consider a “nuisance” plant- duckweed as a potential candidate for bioenergy and animal feedstock from waste nutrient streams. She began experimenting with it in laboratory and outdoor settings. Partnering with Paul Skillicorn of Austin, TX, who has built duckweed production systems in S. America, Bangladesh, and India, Fakhoorian moved from pilot to commercial scale this past spring. “Our team had to engineer and hand-build harvesting and processing systems as there was nothing on the market designed with duckweed in mind,” she said. In keeping with her vision for sustainability, she personally designed a solar boat to aide in harvesting and used solar hot air to dehydrate the duckweed meal. Fertilizer sources were primarily from locally composted animal manure.

“What this means for the United Statesand beyond is a more sustainable approach to meeting the concerns that face modern agriculture,” said Fakhoorian. “Duckweed is excellent at absorbing waste nitrogen and phosphorus from crop run-off and animal waste lagoons. Solar dried and pelleted, duckweed rations can be fed to cattle, swine, poultry, and fish- in some cases, reducing feed costs by as much as 50%. The resulting nearly potable water can be recycled back into the farm, repeating the cycle over and over.

Duckweed is the tiniest flowering plant on Earth, with the smallest species being the size of a pencil tip. Duckweed is also one of the fastest growing plants, doubling in volume every two days. When dried, its protein content is comparable or slightly better than soy but out-produces soy as much as ten times on a yearly basis. Duckweed has proven to be a valuable biomass for animal feed, bioenergy, bioplastics, and even human food.

Fakhoorian serves as Executive Director of the International Lemna Association, the first trade association in the world dedicated to commercial duckweed production, education, and research. To learn more about duckweed, visit InternationalLemnaAssociation.org/.
