Now for what you’ve been waiting for…Seeds: Coagulant: Seeds: Coagulant The seeds of the Moringa tree contain a cation, which acts as a coagulant in turbid water Seed powder is as effective as technical, non-organic water-clarifying agents, such as alum There are no toxic by-products associated with the use of Moringa seeds as a coagulant Moringa Seeds: Moringa Seeds Seed pods grow green (and can be eaten) Pods become brown and hard as they age Pods are filled with white pulp Seeds are brown, and the kernels are whiteSeeds: Coagulant: Seeds: Coagulant Seed kernels are crushed with pestle & mortar Seed powder is sown into sack cloths Sacks are tossed into jugs at water collection site Agitation by transportation disperses the cations to start the coagulation Water settles at the home Lucid water can be poured from the top of the containerTo Treat 20 Liters of Water:: To Treat 20 Liters of Water: 2 grams (2 spoonfuls) of fine Moringa powder Add 1 cup of water Shake for 5 minutes Strain through a clean cloth into bucket of untreated water Stir rapidly for 2 minutes Stir slowly for 10 minutes Settle for 1 hourMoringa Water Treatment Guide: Moringa Water Treatment Guide Somewhat turbid water 1 Moringa Kernel = 2 L Treated Water Very turbid water 1 Moringa Kernel = 1 Liter Treated WaterOn the Market: Moringa Seed Cake: On the Market: Moringa Seed Cake A natural coagulant used as a replacement for proprietary coagulants to treat both drinking water and waste water Don’t eat this cake! Untreated vs Moringa Treated Water: Untreated vs Moringa Treated Water Which would you rather drink?Moringa in Tanzania: Moringa in Tanzania Combined efforts from Tanzania, Kenya and Switzerland have Moringa Plantations to produce “press cakes” for water treatment How does it work?: How does it work? So…Moringa’s Mechanism: Moringa’s Mechanism Moringa Flo polypeptide Antimicrobial peptides (AMP) Cationic – overall net positive Amphiphilic (go into the cells) Target Disinfectant Bactericidal Fungicidal Tumoricidal AMP Mechanisms: AMP Mechanisms Leakage of cellular material Transmembrane channel Depolarization of bacterial membranes Scrambling of lipid distribution Damage intracellular targets Moringa Treatment: Moringa Treatment Electrostatic flocculation (accelerated by stirring) Bacteria attach to colloids Flocs condense contaminants One Mature M. oleifera Tree… : One Mature M. oleifera Tree… Produces 5,500 seeds / year Treats 7,000 liters of water Seeds are 40% oil by weight Total seed weight = ~0.32g Kernel weight = ~0.22g Music – Agua de Moringa: Music – Agua de Moringa Such an inspiring plant – somebody must sing of its fame!
