Moringa seeds used for separation of different materials.
Separation processes are very important in mining industries and the new knowledge could contribute to reduce the needs for expensive synthetic chemicals.
Previous studies have shown that the extracts from seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree can be used for water purification.
In a new study, researchers from Uppsala University show that the Moringa seeds can also be used for separation of different materials.
Moringa trees are known as ‘miracle’ trees because of their many uses as food and as a source of oil. Seeds from the trees are also used to purify water. The special properties of the protein in the seeds have been studied by a group from Uppsala University in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Namibia, Windhoek, and the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France.
New results published in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science suggest that Moringa seeds could be used for separation of different materials rather than just removal of all impurities. Separation processes are very important in mining industries to remove valuable material from waste. This further application of a natural product would reduce the needs for expensive synthetic chemicals.Continue reading →

Why Moringa. The world’s population is projected to be 40 percent higher by 2050.
And yet our farmland is shrinking every year.
16.5921 million ha of rural land has been permanently lost in the last 25 years to highways, shopping malls, poorly planned sprawl and other development, according to a new analysis by the American Farmland Trust. Of that amount, 9.30777 million ha (an area the size of Indiana) was agricultural land. The rate of recent farmland loss has been an astounding acre per minute.
A 60 percent increase in food prices is predicted by 2050…and those costs could rise even higher after natural or manmade environmental catastrophes. http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/kbenfield/were_losing_an_acre_of_farmlan.html
Moringa is picking up steam in parts of the world where it’s never even been heard of. That’s how the Moringa market, estimated to be worth more than $4 billion per year today, is projected to be worth $7 billion by 2020.
One of the biggest and best solutions to the world’s malnutrition problems is the Moringa tree. Points out what a few people on the planet already know and what most people on the planet will recognize sooner or late.
The Moringa tree – Moringa Oleifera – Is jam-packed with nutritional value. On a gram per gram basis, Moringa has twice the protein of yogurt, seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the vitamin A of carrots, and four times as much calcium as milk. It’s also been associated with cholesterol reduction, balancing of blood sugar, and it even has antibacterial properties. http://www.smallcapnetwork.com/The-Only-Way-to-Invest-in-Moringa-Mania/s/via/10/article/view/p/mid/3/id/611/ James E. Brumley is a paid contributor of the SmallCap Network.
Moringa Oleifera is an interesting plant for its use in bioactive compounds.
In this manuscript, we review studies concerning the cultivation and production of Moringa along with genetic diversity among different accessions and populations. Different methods of propagation, establishment and cultivation are discussed. Moringa Oleifera shows diversity in many characters and extensive morphological variability, which may provide a resource for its improvement. Continue reading →

The oil from the Moringa tree is considered to be a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel.
Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The Moringa tree is native to India and grown in tropical and subtropical regions across Asia, Africa and South America. It is also grown as an ornamental tree in the southern United States.
Moringa oleifera is a tree that is sometimes called the Tree of Life or a Miracle Tree, but rather than this being in reference to its potential medicinal usage this is actually referring to how it is a very valuable food crop (it is drought resistant, grows very fast, and is highly nutritive) and even beyond food it serves many benefits in third world countries such as having an ability to be used for some crafts (due to being a tree) and cleaning water.

Moringa seeds are packed with valuable nutrients and are useful in preventing and treating a host of illnesses. Such benefits have been well documented, and proven by research, by entities such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of health.
Trough our education program we are teaching at the countryside how to clean dirt water into clean drinking water with the Moringa Seeds.
Moringa Seeds Education, cleaning dirty water into clean drinking water
Amazing to see how many people are interesting in this, full classes at the primary school in the countryside of Cambodia !
How to purify water with the Moringa Seed.
The seed of the Moringa tree (Moringa Oleifera) is a natural flocculant/coagulant. That is, when dried Moringa seeds or seed powder is added to water it helps to treat turbid or cloudy water by pulling together floating particles—including dirt, other solids, and some germs and worms—and when the water settles, the particles sink to the bottom of the water container. This method helps reduce dirt and germs that cause disease and illness.
