“Petroleum-Eating Mushrooms To Decontaminate Our Most Polluted Sites”

“Rather than just waiting for nature to take its course, scientists are now speeding up the process by selecting fungi, microorganisms, and even trees to do the job in just a few years. Mohamed Hijri, a professor of biological sciences and researcher at the University of Montreal’s Institut de Recherche en Biologie Végétale (IRBV), has been engineering these toxic ecosystems. And he is succeeding.

“If we leave nature to itself, even the most contaminated sites will find some sort of balance thanks to the colonization by bacteria and mushrooms,” says Hiri on the University of Montreal’s website. “But by isolating the most efficient species in this biological battle, we can gain a lot of time.”
