Abstract

KALAIARASI, K.; LAVANYA, A.; AMSAMANI, S.  and  BAGYALAKSHMI, G.. Decolourization of textile dye effluent by non-viable biomass of Aspergillus fumigatus. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.3, pp. 471-476. ISSN 1516-8913.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132012000300019.

The aim of this work was to study the decolourization of textile dye effluent by non-viable biomass of Aspergillus fumigates. The dried non-viable fungal biomass exhibited maximum dye removal at pH 7.0 with temperature of 30ºC and 3 g/l (w/v) biomass concentration, after 24 h contact time. The results showed that the non-viable biomass possessed high efficiency for dye removal from textile effluent.

Keywords : Aspergillus fumigatus; decolourization; textile effluent.
