Decolorization and Degradation of Phenolic Paper Mill Effluent by Native White Rot Fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium

P.C. Prabu and C. Udayasoorian

Abstract:
A white rot fungus isolated from soil samples enriched by continuous pulp and paper mill effluent irrigation and identified as Phanerochaete chrysosporium was capable of decolorization and degradation of chlorinated phenol from paper mill effluent. There was 84% effluent decolourisation along with 79% COD reduction by Phanerochaete chrysosporium. The effluent chlorinated phenol degradation was 91% by the fungus when added with 1% glucose as co-substrate.
