Water hyacinth is a quickly growing lasting aquatic pickerel weed plant. This plant as a major risk for a ecosystem due to the spectacular growth and ecological impact namely clogging and draining of lake and river. However, this plant can act as a bio-sorbent and good removal for heavy metals because of the chemical composition in water hyacinth. From this point of view, this project would apply water hyacinth as desalination medium for artificial sea water. Moreover, this project involves the preparation of water hyacinth as a raw material for desalination of artificial sea water by drying and pulverization in presence of ion exchange resins (strong acid cation resin 12EX C100 and strong base anionic resin 12EX C200). Subsequently, routine analysis of salinity of sea water around reclamation area in Melaka town will be performed in order to get the information about the salinity of sea water. Based on the natural salinity of sea water, various concentration of artificial sea water will be prepared. Desalination of this artificial sea water would be performed by water hyacinth supported by ion exchange resins. The desalination would be carried out by fabricated column. This project will provide information about capacity of water hyacinth and ion exchange resins to remove the salinity of artificial sea water involve the optimum flow rate of water influence in the column and regeneration of the desalination medium.
