Role of some micromycetes in biosorption of heavy metals in different polluted water samples

In this study, heavy metal biosorption potential of indigenous micromycetes was determined. Water samples were collected from different waste water points, chemical industry and tanneries effluents. Indigenous mycoflora was isolated on 2% MEA medium and purified for biomass production. Selected water samples were exposed to UV radiation to kill microbial life in them. Isolated biomass was added to respective water...

Comparative profile of paddy straw pretreated with standard and isolated lignocellulolytic fungal cultures

The ligno-cellulosic biomass is the most abundant and also the most renewable biomaterial on earth. The development of alternative energy technology such as bioconversion of biomass is critically important because of the rising prices of crude oil, security issues regarding the oil supply and air pollution. Many microorganisms in nature are able to attack and degrade lignin, thus making access to cellulose easy. Such...
