Removal of pollutants by mycelium colonized sawdust
Slaughterhouses generate wastewater daily and often discharge it to the environment. Many lack wastewater treatment systems, due to such systems’ typically high cost and technological demands. In
Fungi Are Capable of Mycoremediation of River Water Contaminated by E. coli
Wastewater pollution results in detrimental effects on ecosystems and poses human health hazards. As the human population and urbanization rates increase, so do abiotic and biotic contaminants such
Removal of Escherichia coli from synthetic stormwater using mycofiltration.
TLDR
The study highlights the limitations of using thermotolerant coliform to assess pathogen removal in cellulose rich ecotechnologies like mycofiltration and indicates that wood chip and straw media appeared less effective with substantial net export of bacteria from both mycelium-infused and un-inoculated control media.
