Duties:

The project aims at developing a novel fungal pre-processing and system enabling a combined production of edible mushroom and biofuels from different woody residues. The main task includes studies on the mechanism of edible fungus cultivation as a biological pre-processing of different types of wood substrate to produce advanced biofuels. This applies to enzymatic process, symbiotic microbes and lignocellulose degradation in fungal culture substrates during the pre-treatment/cultivation time.
