Anyone ever look at this? I've heard some talk (GGMM) about mycelium's ability to filter natural contaminants and metals, has anyone ever looked at this.

I'm considdering trying to look ad the viability of replicating Stamets' experience in an industrial setting.

Check out Mycelium Running, also by Stamets.

Oyster and garden giants are especially suited to filtering farm waste run off and cut down on coliform bacteria numbers substantially.

I had an experiment going this summer using colonized straw bales to filter manure runoff entering a creek.  The Department of Ecology came out twice and took fecal coliform readings.  The second reading was somewhat lower than the first for e-coli.  Then, another group of cows came around from the back side of the fence and ate all the myceliated straw before the State could take the end of season readings. :frown:  I'll have to repeat the experiments next season with concrete or some other barrier to prevent the damn cows from eating the filter.  I'm hoping to get a grant from the conservation district to offset some of the costs.

Did you use freshly colonized bales or blocks of spent substrate?
