MycoFarming researches technologies like mycofiltration to treat organic pollutants.

Mycofiltration uses fungi or mushroom mycelium to filter chemicals out of water.

In farms, this technology can be used to mitigate eutrophying emissions, such as nitrogen and phosphorus. This greatly reduces the environmental impact of agriculture.

Find out how it works below...

MYCO FILTRATION

  • Mushroom Mycelium ∨

    Mycelium is the main body of fruiting mushrooms. It looks like a sponge, and when it comes to pollutants, it acts like one too. The same technology that powers the next generation of biobased materials powers the next generation of biobased pollution remediation.

  • Water quality ∨

    Mycofiltration can be used to remove micropollutants from water. These are hard to remove pollutants such as nitrogen, phosphorus, crude oil derivates and industrial waste such as pharmaceutical and cosmetic sidestreams and textile dyes. In lab experiments, it has shown to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus in water by up to 86% overnight.

  • Cost-effective ∨

    Industrial methods can be expensive and resource-intensive. Mycofiltration offers an effective and sustainable alterantive, reducing the economic burden on communities or businesses seeking environmental cleanup. Treatment of nutrient effluents by mycofiltration produces 10x less CO2 emissions than other treatment methods

  • Leave nothing to waste ∨

    Mycelium is grown from clean organic waste, like rice husks or sawdust, promoting a circular economy. Post-remediation, the spent mycelium, rich in organic matter, can be readily upcycled or composted, returning the nutrients to the soil.

  • Partnerships ∨

    MycoFarming stands as a symbiotic business with agricultural entities, environmental NGOs, and research institutions. By aligning our goals, we can collectively drive innovation, and amplify our impact on sustainable practices.
