A few years ago, EarthFax began evaluating remediation technologies which would set them apart from the competition. This search led to Utah State University, where an innovative bioremediation technology had been under development since the mid 1980s. The technology, which utilizes white-rot fungi to degrade a broad variety of environmental contaminants, had been extensively evaluated in the laboratory and the university desired to find an environmental engineering company that could help take it to the field.
With the hiring of Dr. Richard T. Lamar as Director of Research and Applications, EarthFax moved into the forefront of commercialization of the technology. Dr. Lamar's many years of experience with fungal bioremediation, coupled with the design expertise of EarthFax Engineering, have provided an unprecedented team to advance this technology to the field. By involving EarthFax, those who are interested in fungal bioremediation now no longer need to re-invent the wheel.
