As informs a source of chrdk.ru , specialists Institute of Biophysics, Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Krasnoyarsk figured out how to use the benefit of the ability of fungi to accumulate heavy metals. Researchers have grown oyster mushrooms in water with radioactive metal americium-241. Scientists have found that about two weeks most of the dissolved americium turned into a mushroom and was associated with cell walls. Americium-241 – is a silvery metal that glows in the dark. It is highly toxic, and its half-life is more than 400 years. Americium is used in small quantities in the current smoke detectors. Also this metal is formed by the decay of plutonium-241, which is present in the weapons and reactor grade plutonium. Results of Krasnoyarsk scientists show: Oyster good clean water from americium, although in practice it is unlikely someone will clean the liquid radioactive waste mushrooms.
