This library is to be used as a bioremediation resource. The library mainly consists of published articles, books, and community projects relevant to our investigation of biological organisms being utilized to remedy pollutants. Check out our educational series for video format of highlighted organisms or our how-tos for cultivation purposes here!
Bioremediation Books and Other Researchers
Earth Repair describes a host of powerful grassroots bioremediation techniques, including:
- Microbial remediation-using microorganisms to break down and bind contaminants
- Phytoremediation-using plants to extract, bind, and transform toxins
- Mycoremediation-using fungi to clean up contaminated soil and water.

CoRenewal (formerly known as Amazon MycoRenewal Project) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing education and research in ecosystem restoration, health and healing, and sustainable community dynamics.
Mycoevolve: Jess Ann Ruben Yepeth Perla
MycoEvolve aims to reconcile how humans have and are disturbing earth’s balance. Through research, earthworks, and education we support land tenders to consciously, diversify habitat in ways that support pollinators and their food web neighborhood.
