    Introduction: Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms is an aquatic plant that reproduces rapidly in polluted water. Due to the high adsorption capacity of heavy metals, the plant is used as a
    phytoremediation agent; its biomass can also be used biofuel production.
    Objective: To compile information on state-of-the-art water treatment processes and biofuel production with E. crassipes to design an integrated biohydrogen and bioethanol production process with the plant’s biomass.
    Materials and methods: The available literature on E. crassipes was reviewed to analyze the
    designs and propose an integrated phytoremediation and bioenergy system.
    Results and discussion: The proposed design can be adjusted to industrial scale conditions. This design includes a phytoremediation system, a bioreactor to generate hydrolysis, a bioreactor to generate bioethanol and, finally, a bioreactor to generate hydrogen.
    Conclusions: By consulting the state of the art of the proposed designs, it is possible to
    create and construct, on a large scale, a system for producing bioethanol and biohydrogen
    from E. crassipes biomass (loaded or not with heavy metals). In this way, the plant biomass is not wasted as it is today.
