Mycoremediation I - Breeding and Screening Local Polypores

project report´╗┐

Mycoremediation is a form of bioremediation that uses fungi for decontamination of the environment. Polypores may be suitable for breaking down even complex pollutants as they have to solve a similar problem in their natural habitat: Over millions of years, they developed into specialists in enzymatic breakdown of substances that are not easily decomposed by other methods. The initial goal of this project is to find out which local polypores can be bread efficiently outside their natural habitat. If such polypores can be identified, then the second phase will study which local species may be able to break down substances such as oil, petrol and diesel.
