The proprietary Lyndon Water System (LWS) is a unique integration of natural processes. Water purification is undertaken in extensive, shallow, typically enclosed containment structures. Floating on the surface of the water is the fastest growing leafed plant in the world. This plant, due to the rapid growth rate, hungrily pulls nutrients and minerals out of the water. In doing so the water is purified to the levels normally achieved in the best commercial water treatment plants.
The paradigm shift is to view “waste” in a water stream as free fertilizer instead of a problem. Use the free fertilizer and release the water for reuse.
Water at this point is suitable for industrial reuse or for irrigation if that is required. Normally we would expect to continue onto further stages of treatment, in particular combinations of ozone/ultraviolet/ultra-filtration, to take the water quality beyond drinking water. Water after final treatment will be amongst the best in the world.
The plants we grow are from the Lemnaceae family. Various species of this family can be found all over the world and are commonly called “Duckweed”. They grow quickly and have very high protein content. Lemnaceae species have a higher quality protein than soya beans, and comparable quantity on a percent of dry weight basis. As an aquatic crop, they are massively more productive per hectare than any land based agriculture. Lemnaceae can be converted directly into nourishing meals for people, a high protein food supplement or high quality stock feed as demand dictates.
Lyndon Water has integrated its own Proprietary Systems along with known technologies into a unique commercial proposition.
The paradigm shift is to utilize fast growing aquatic plants (Lemnaceae) to extract and convert nutrients in the water stream into high protein Feed Stock. Along with treating the water to a standard beyond tertiary treated water, allowing the production of Fish, freshwater prawns and a range of fresh herbs and salad vegetables.
This flexibility allows configuration of the plants to match the available water resource to existing or developing market demands.Our unique integrated plant and fish production facility has been developed to ensure a controlled and hygienic environment for quality food production. Facilities are modular allowing rapid construction and roll-out in any suitable location
Vast areas of the earth have brackish (mild salt) ground water that is not suitable for
drinking or irrigation. We can desalinate using a very low energy biological process
using one of the fastest growing crops on earth. This crop is integrated with intensive,
hygienic fish and vegetable farming making drinking water and food from “unusable” water.
