This training presents a very effective strategy that basically everyone, from companies to governments to communities, may apply for getting rid of pollution by oil. Very simple natural materials are needed: mushrooms (and products).
- How to recognize the most effective mushrooms and derived products for oil removal
- How to make a positive action to both soils and waters polluted by crude oil & refined products
- How to prepare communities, companies and governments to minimize effects of freshwater oil spills
During this training you’ll learn how to apply mushrooms for solving pollution by oil and some related harmful and widespread products. Spent mushroom substrate is the key for performing the best possible work. This is a waste easily available can be obtained by mushroom growers and agro-industry. In addition, biochar and a special mushroom strain are able to turn pollution into new energy when in the presence of a selected oil-derived compound on the ground. Last, but not least, the module presents the easiest opportunity to take action after a freshwater oil spill (but also during and before this happens). A huge money saver for companies and an even more beneficial opportunity for making communities cleaner, safer and healthier.
Oil spills and more in general pollution by oil and petrochemical compounds will be always more important in the future. Spills will occur, leaks will occur: for many years to come the so-called heavy industry will pose a serious threat to public health and to the environment as well. When dealing with such important threats, we must rely on affordable solutions. Involved communities need to be an active part of protection and remediation efforts. In fact, this type of pollution lasts for many years, then the remediation has to be in place for a long time.
Mushrooms allow to achieve impressive results, by far better than most conventional methods. And we must learn how to be prepared to face this threat. First of all, we have to notice that not all mushrooms can be used. Some are good, some are not. In addition, it’s really very important to prepare a wide-scale strategy and teach the community on how to perform a good and continued work on the field.
Timing of the action is the key, especially after oil spills as well as small leaks. In most cases, the intervention has to stay in place for several years.
The most appropriate and indicated mushrooms and derived products to use in order to generate the highest possible amount of additional, healthy and natural energy for free; all this is coupled with the highest effectiveness in oil removal from the water or the ground.
The importance of be constantly informed: there still are some unknown aspects of mushrooms application for oil removal, although so many benefits are already possible; it’s very important to underline what we know and what we don’t to avoid mistakes and unwanted effects.
The better possible strategy to apply for protecting communities, critical facilities and more in general the people from freshwater oil spills; they are perhaps less known than others (on the sea) however very frequent and important to delicate environmental equilibria.
This live training focuses the attention on oil & gas industry effects to the environment and belongs to the bigger framework called “Remedial Energy For The Oil & Gas”. This very special framework is aimed at bringing the “white” into the “black” of the energy. For this particular training, basically everyone can really benefit from that: from affected communities up to oil & gas companies and even policymakers. By applying the proposed guidelines, there is in fact the true opportunity to remove a high load of pollution by oil in a short time window.
If you wish, there is the chance of ordering a customized handbook that covers more deeply a specific issue related to other opportunities for generating more energy, cutting environmental costs and making disappear pollution by oil with mushrooms. This is particularly suggested if you have high availability of a single or a few mushroom species, then you need to know if they may be used as a good (or not) remediation tool. To do that, you only need to send us a message and we’ll reply with our proposal.
