Abstract

This report focuses on the optimal conditions for Phanerochaete chrysosporium and Trametes versicolor to reduce colour, COD, aromatic compounds and toxicity of a pulp mill waste water. The results demonstrate that treatment with white-rot fungi is adequate to detoxify these types of effluents and could be a pre-treatment step prior to use of other biological processes. © Publications Division, Selper Ltd. 1993.
