Project structure

The Mic GIVER project aims to explore the bioremediation potential of microscopic fungi on 4 groups of pollutants emblematic of human activities: Glyphosate, diesel, waxes and nitrated explosive.

After screening for biodegradation activities and/or production of metabolites of interest, the decontamination potential of these fungi will be assessed using in situ biostimulation and bioaugmentation tests.

These approaches will be done either through the use of fungi or by their metabolites to stimulate the degradation of contaminants, or by promoting the depolluting activity of plants by adding fungi or their metabolites.

Ultimately, Mic GIVER will enable the development of new fungal pollution control bioprocesses.

The overall objective of this work package is the administrative, financial and legal management of Mic GIVER project.

Screening of HNS biodegradation activities and mycosurfactant production from 500 fungal strains from the UBOCC and LUBEM collection with the final aim of 2 positive hits by HNS.

Discovery of new mycosurfactants and/or biodegradation activities specific to 4 emblematic HNS (TRL3).

Extraction, purification & structural characterization of fungal secondary metabolites

The aim of the project is to characterize the efficacy of a set of strains able to be used for waters and/or soils contamination, a sort of turnkey approach from the producer to the user.

Design and optimization of field protocols suitable for an operational context.
