dc.description.abstract Disposal of waste generated after the harvesting of mushrooms is one of the major problems in mushroom cultivation industries. There is an urgent need for a technology that produces high-value products from the spent mushroom substrate. This need came as a result of a huge amount of spent mushroom substrate produced by the edible mushroom industry which is on an increase in many countries around the world. If not well maintained, spent mushroom substrate could cause major environmental problems which are already felt in many mushroom-producing countries. Most problems reported are associated lack of knowledge for treatment and disposal of the spent mushroom substrate. Available information has revealed that many potential agricultural and industrial uses of the spent mushroom substrate include fertilizer manufacturing, animal feed, compost for soil enrichment, treatment for coal mine drainage, bioremediation, enzyme extraction, and novel bio-sorbent. This review aims at outlining some important techniques used in making use of the biological and agricultural waste emanating from mushroom growing activities around the world. The review aims at availing some possible initiatives on reducing environmental waste through zero disposal of mushroom production waste while at the same time utilizing low-value materials to produce value-added products and generate income. en_US
