Increasing environmental pollution is connected with broad applications of dyes and imperfection of dyeing technology. Decolourization of triphenylmethane brilliant green and disazo Evans blue by bacterial and fungal strains and toxicity (phyto- and zootoxicity) of degradation by-products were investigated. Influence of incubation method on dyes removal was(More)
The aim of the present study was the decolourisation of mixture of two dyes belonging to different groups by two Pseudomonas fluorescens strains (Sz6 and SDz3). Influence of different incubation conditions on decolourisation effectiveness was evaluated. Dyes used in the experiment were diazo Evans blue (EB) and triphenylmethane brilliant green (BG). Another(More)
Decolorization of brilliant green (0.06 g/L), Evans blue (0.15 g/L), and their mixture (total concentration 0.08 g/L, proportion 1:1 w/w) by fungi was studied. Fungal strains [Pleurotus ostreatus (BWPH), Gloeophyllum odoratum (DCa), and Fusarium oxysporum (G1)] were used separately and as a mixture of them. Zootoxicity (Daphnia magna) and phytotoxicity(More)
The use of azo dyes is popular in different branches of industry. Discharge of colourants to surface water cause harmful environmental effects. The aim of the present study was evaluation of effectiveness of diazo Evans blue decolourization by two Pseudomonas strains and estimation of process byproducts toxicity. In static conditions, both tested strains(More)
Dyes are the most difficult constituents to remove by conventional biological wastewater treatment. Colored wastewater is mainly eliminated by physical and chemical procedures, which are very expensive and have drawbacks. Therefore, the advantage of using biological processes, such as the biotransformation of dyes, is that they may lead to complete(More)
This study aimed to decolourise different dyes using two Klebsiella strains (Bz4 and Rz7) in different concentrations and incubation conditions. Azo (Evans blue (EB)) and triphenylmethane (brilliant green (BG)) dyes were used individually and in mixture. The toxicity of the biotransformation products was estimated. Both strains had a significant potential(More)
Different technologies may be used for decolorization of wastewater containing dyes. Among them, biological processes are the most promising because they seem to be environmentally safe. The aim of this study was to determine the efficiency of decolorization of two dyes belonging to different classes (azo and triphenylmethane dyes) by immobilized biomass of(More)
