Title: FILAMENTOUS FUNGAL BIOMATS, METHODS OF THEIR PRODUCTION AND METHODS OF THEIR USE
Abstract:
A novel method of growing fungi is disclosed which uses an engineered artificial media and produces high density filamentous fungi biomats that can be harvested with a minimum of processing and from which fungal products such as antibiotics, proteins, and lipids can be isolated, the method resulting in lowered fungus cultivation costs for energy usage, oxygenation, water usage and waste stream production.
