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
- chemical toxins
They can be installed around the following types of sites:
- farms, suburban and urban areas
- 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
- breweries (washed grain) and other industries
