Toelichting (Engels) This review will focus on mycoremediation; the use of fungi to perform bioremediation. More specifically, the review will be tailored towards the use of WRF (white-rot fungi) to bioremediate EDCs (endocrine disrupting compounds) present in surface water and effluent streams that cannot be effectively removed by current water treatment plants. The aim of this review is to give a comprehensive overview of recent developments and prospects in the field of WRF-mediated remediation of water abundant EDCs. To this end, first, an overview of the issues related to EDCs and their impact will be provided. Afterwards, contemporary EDC-related mycoremediative mechanisms of WRFs will be discussed. Subsequently, water systems in which EDCs are removed are elaborated upon and assessed. Finally, knowledge gaps and future perspectives are discussed to allow for improvement in the remediation of EDCs by WRFs and to stimulate and steer research within this field.
