1. Mycoremediation can be used when there are oil spills; to filter water; to extract heavy metals and radiation; and to regenerate healthy, biodiverse ecosystems. 2. Mycoremediation was used in San Francisco in 2007 when a cargo ship spilled 58,000 gallons of heavy fuel oil, contaminating the shoreline. The mushrooms broke down the oil in the soil.
