Mycelium Powder is a pure Pleurotus ostreatus mycelium with a characteristic hydrophobic nature. Mycelium Powder attracts oils and fats commonly found in wastewater streams and delivers the encapsulated fat-degrading bacteria directly to these target pollutants.
The development of this product is revolutionary because it combines in-situ absorption and degradation of fat/oil solids in wastewater applications. This combined function has to date only been achieved in soil remediation. The absorption matrix is usually slowly degradable, however the mycelium matrix in Mycelium Powder degrades very fast in wastewater applications.
