Bio-solution for Contaminated Soils - An Innovative fungal solution for the biological treatment of complex pollution

Past and sometimes current industrial activities have released a vast array of toxic pollutants, threatening human health and earth biodiversity.

Expert in fungal based technologies, Novobiom emulates natural processes to design low carbon regenerative solutions, revolutionizing the scope of traditional bioremediation to the treatment of complex recalcitrant contaminants and restore degraded ecosystems. Novobiom's unique approach links two distinct supply chains, the bioremediation sector and the urban green waste treatment into an impactful, circular and economically sound mycoremediation solution. Rupturing from the usual industrial practices, this solution opens new ways to rehabilitate formal contaminated industrial sites, lowering the remediation cost and enabling new developments in areas under urban pressure and , thus contributing to the prevention of fertile land artificialisation.
