3 level plastics composting bin can be put together with a running time in between grain to grain transfers pending on your agar culture work.

what is the strain? Pluerotus Djamor. Pink Oyster.

top level: new plastics shredded in saw dust substrate... after partial degrade perform grain to grain xfer to middle level.

middle level: partially degraded plastics come in to new substrate for another running time, then grain to grain into the bottom level.

bottom: same as above levels and then use the mushroom castings left over in your plant pots or whatever.


the mushrooms will be shooting out of the bin from time to time... use the fruit bodies for methanol production, the fungal sugars exceed levels of plant fruits and can produce more methanol for generating power for
pumps in the aquaponics system or whatever.

The best book to buy is The Mushroom Cultivator by: Paul Stamets.

this book teaches you how to isolate agar cultures and clone cultures to make them run through substrate at faster rates. With the Pluerotus variety you get the fastest growing mushrooms in the world, and with P. Djamor you
get the fastest growing Pluerotus.

Plueurotus (Oyster mushroom) eats plastics.

after developing a superstrain off petri dishes.

set up a three level bin and only put plastics into the top level. the top level should be full of substrate mixed with your plastics. let it run through that a bit and then grain to grain down to the middle level introducing the top
level to a completely plastic free middle level substrate, this re-energizes the culture and they work on the plastics more. Then do the same thing after it runs through the middle level to the bottom introducing new substrate.

substrate = sawdust and plastics.

the amount of fruits will be overbearing, best to throw those into the biomass generator to power the aqauponics pump.

I've read the book, though it's been a few years. what do you mean when you say "grain to grain"?
