The aim of this work was to ascertain whether a submerged culture of a white rot fungus could be used to treat distillery wastewater, and whether the compounds present in the wastewater would stimulate laccase production. Trametes pubescens MB 89, Ceriporiopsis subvermispora, Pycnoporus cinnabarinus and UD4 were screened for their ability for the bioremediation of a raw, untreated distillery wastewater as well as distillery wastewater that had been pretreated by polyvinylpolypyrrolidone… Expand
Fungal and enzymatic remediation of a wine lees and five wine-related distillery wastewaters.
TLDR
The complete fungal system was found to be superior to enzymatic treatment alone, and in the case of wine lees significantly increased the colour of the wastewaters, and at the same time reduced the total phenols but did little to improve the colour. Expand
Fungal remediation of Amarula distillery wastewater
Amarula Cream is an alcoholic beverage derived from the distillation of fermented marula fruit and to date there is no scientific data as to the characteristics of the distillery wastewater generatedExpand
Fungal biodegradation and multi-level toxicity assessment of vinasse from distillation of winemaking by-products.
TLDR
P. rufa biodegradation kinetics was characterized by strong metabolic activity with simultaneous depletion of TOC, phenolics and sugars, and the main events of second phase are the increase of peroxidases production after the peak of laccase activity, and strong color removal. Expand
Fungal Remediation and Subsequent Methanogenic Digestion

TLDR
Various culture parameters were optimised for laccase synthesis by Trametes pubescens MB89, including pH, carbon source, nitrogen source, lignocellulosic supplements, and reported inducers, and a synergistic increase in laccases synthesis was observed with the addition of glucose, copper, and 2,5-xylidine.

The Role of Microorganisms in Distillery Wastewater Treatment: A Review
Distilleries are one of the most polluting industries generating large volume of wastewater having a serious environmental concern. Distillery effluent is characterized by dark brown color, acidicExpand
Bioremediation Applications with Fungi
Industrial wastewaters such as olive oil mill wastewater (OOMW) and alcohol factory wastewater (vinasse) with high polluting characteristics affect the ecosystem seriously. The environmental impactExpand
Spent mushroom substrate for a second cultivation cycle of Pleurotus mushrooms and dephenolization of agro-industrial wastewaters.
TLDR
Results showed that both Pleurotus species exhibited BE over 185%, demonstrating this bioprocess could represent a promising strategy to convert SMS into nutritional food and indicate the strong positive impact that SMS could have in the solid wastes' management and agribusiness enhancement. Expand
Novel approach for alleviation of soil water repellency using a crude enzyme extract from fungal pretreatment of switchgrass
Soil water repellency (SWR) caused by organic coatings on soil particles can lead to serious loss in crop production and turfgrass quality. In laboratory experiments, we tested the novel concept ofExpand

Fungal Bioremediation of Phenolic Wastewaters in an Airlift Reactor
TLDR
The white rot fungus, Trametes pubescens, was demonstrated to be an effective bioremediation agent for the treatment of Phenolic wastewaters, and the degradation results represent the highest rate of removal of phenolic compounds from water reported for white rot fungi. Expand
Potent fungi for decolourisation of olive oil mill wastewaters
Abstract A broad screening of 58 fungi including 46 white rot strains on solid media resulted in the selection of 13 white rot fungi, which were active in decolourising the poly R-478 lignin modelExpand
Exploitation of a waste from the brewing industry for laccase production by two Trametes species
TLDR
The in vitro decolourisation of several synthetic dyes by the extracellular liquid produced by T. versicolor and the newly isolated Trametes hirsuta cultures was carried out and high decolouredisation percentages in short incubation times were achieved for Bromophenol Blue, Indigo Carmine and Methyl Orange, whereas Poly R-478 presented much more resistance to degradation.

Biotreatment of tannin-rich beer-factory wastewater with white-rot basidiomycete Coriolopsis gallica monitored by pyrolysis/gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Results indicate the potential use of C. gallica in bioremediation of tannin-containing industrial wastewaters and in other applications where a reduction in polyphenols content is required. Expand
The effect of phenolic acids and molasses spent wash concentration on distillery wastewater remediation by fungi
TLDR
Fungal growth was inhibited to a varying extent in the presence of gallic and vanillic acid, except for G. candidum, which was unaffected by gallic acid. Expand
Increased production of laccase by the wood-degrading basidiomycete Trametes pubescens
TLDR
By applying a fed-batch strategy, in which a glucose solution was fed continuously to a cultivation of T. pubescens so that the glucose concentration in the medium never exceeded a certain low, critical value, glucose repression could be avoided and production of laccase was almost doubled as compared to the batch cultivation. Expand
Banana skin: A novel waste for laccase production by Trametes pubescens under solid-state conditions. Application to synthetic dye decolouration
In this paper, we investigated the potential of banana skin as a support-substrate for the production of extracellular laccase by the white-rot fungus Trametes pubescens CBS 696.94. Laccase showed aExpand
Enhancement of the anaerobic digestion of wine distillery wastewater by the removal of phenolic inhibitors
Wine-distillery wastewater has a high organic pollutant load (40 g COD/litre) which includes various phenolic compounds, the major ones being gallic acid, p-coumaric acid and gentisic acid. ThisExpand
White-rot fungi and their enzymes for the treatment of industrial dye effluents.
TLDR
The decolorization and detoxification potential of WRF can be harnessed thanks to emerging knowledge of the physiology of these organisms as well as of the biocatalysis and stability characteristics of their enzymes. Expand
Microbiology of a biological contactor for winery wastewater treatment.
TLDR
It is suggested that the naturally occurring microorganisms were able to form a stable biofilm and also reduce the chemical oxygen demand of winery wastewater and play an important role in the degradation of organic compounds under aerobic conditions, such as those associated with an RBC. Expand
