MycoFiltration

Understanding the value and movement of water is fundamental to our understanding of biological processes.

Mycofiltration is the use of mycellium as a membrane for filtering out micro-organisms pollutants, and silt. Controlling the flow of water as well as removing excess bacteria and metals that may have a harmful to the proliferation of biodiversity.

Mycofiltration has many applications. Mycofiltration membranes can filter the following:

  • pathogens including protozoa, bacteria, and viruses
  • silt
  • chemical toxins

They can be installed around the following types of sites:

  • farms, suburban and urban areas
  • watersheds
  • factories
  • roads
  • stressed, harmed, or malnourished habitats

Installation of mycofiltration membranes can utilise debris from the following sources, which is then inoculated with toxin-specific mushrooms.

  • forests (brush, tree trimmings, wood chips)
  • pulp, paper mills (cellulose, fibre, cardboard, or paper waste
  • city and rural recycling centre
  • farms
  • breweries (washed grain) and other industries
