Abstract: The specific term for the Water hyacinth plant is Eichhorniacrassipes. The water plant that flows freely, rising at still or slower water sources. Water Hyacinth develops massive biomass and doubles its population in two weeks by fast-growing. These entail a loss of biodiversity, water pollution, water loss, agriculture, infrastructure damage and negatively effect on public safety, and water species. The objective of the study is to evaluate the chemical composition of water hyacinth ash by XRD and SEM .XRD is an obligatory method for analysing the characteristics and composition of materials. It is a non-destructive method to analyse all types of material substances like powder, crystals, and fluids. Nowadays X-ray diffraction Techniques are utilized in assorted fields like research, development, and production of materials. The particle size, shapes, surface roughness, and fracture are defined using aEDAX. When a sample is placed on the beam and multiple signals determine the interactions with the samples. Acetone is used to stop the hydration reactions. Then the specimen is dried and made to conduct. Finally, a micrograph was recorded using SEM.
