Bioremediation processes require cheap and effective nutrient sources which contain significant amounts of nitrogen, e.g. corn steep liquor (CSL). In order to elucidate fungal copper tolerance in a nitrogen-rich environment, experiments were performed on a nutrient medium and with wood. CSL was added to nutrient medium containing different copper concentrations and to Norway spruce (Picea abies) wood specimens impregnated with a commercial copper-based preservative (CCB).
