Abstract

Since Belarus is rich in sphagnum bogs it is extremely important to develop ways to use the resources of sphagnum mosses with a number of useful properties. Sphagnum is the only genus in the class Sphagnopsida and includes 36 Bryophyta species in Belarus. Sphagnum mosses, which are widespread in Belarus, have great potential for possible use in contaminated water purification from various hydrophilic and hydrophobic solvents and salt solutions, in light industry and agriculture (considering the need of their renewal).
