Bisphenol A (BPA) is an endocrine disruptor compound (EDC) of xenobiotic origin occurring in natural waters and wastewaters, especially in the most industrialized and urbanized areas. Recent investigations report the use of ligninolytic fungi for the removal of aromatic contaminants, including some EDCs, from different matrices. Humic acids (HA) are widely spread in all natural systems and their presence is ascertained to interfere with microbial growth and activity. The objective of this study… CONTINUE READING
