Biosorption of Heavy Metals Using Aquatic Pycnidial and Hyptomycetes Fungi

Om Kalthoum H. Khattab    

Abstract: This study investigates the extraction of the heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cu and Fe) from wastes of coke Factory using aquatic pycnidial fungi, aquatic Hyphomycetes and pencillium viridicutum. Cylindrocarpon heteronemum displayed superior kinetics of dissolution of Fe, Cu and Zn compared with the other groups. Although Pencillium viridicutum had high activity for extraction of Pb (81%), it had low activity for dissolution of Zn and Cu metals (49 and 40%, respectively) from effluent. The effect of pH was evaluated. The results have shown that alkaline and acidity media displayed superior of extraction of heavy metals.
