Stock cultures for biomodification of lignocellulose waste and biodegradation of pollutants

MBT knows how to deploy fungi to deal with lignocellulose waste recycling and bioremediation of recalcitrant organopollutants.

Fungi are unique in their ability to degrade lignocellulose and are capable of tolerating high concentrations of pollutants. Versatility and robustness make fungi very efficient bioremediation agents.

However, thorough understanding of ecophysiology of fungi and the mechanism of their action are required to tap into their tremendous potential for bio-modification and bioremediation. Mycorrhiza Biotech serves the needs of clients looking for effective means for lignocellulose waste recycling and pollutant remediation

MBT utilizes selected fungal cultures from its extensive fungal culture collection to meet client’s project’s goals and peculiarities of substrate or project site. Stock cultures can contain one or several aggressive wood-degrading fungi, especially white rot fungi (WRF). MBT uses both model (Phanerochaete spp.) and non-model organisms (WRF).

All materials provided to client are accompanied with certification of their identity (cultural traits and DNA sequence ID).
