In the present study, an attempt was made for the removal of Remazol Black B dye (azo dye) by using Aspergillus Flavus during its growth. Biosorption of the azo dye by growing fungi was investigated in batch reactors as a function of initial concentration of dye (25-1000 mg/L), inoculum concentration (5-20%), and pH (2.5-6.5). The total biomass concentration decreased from 6.3 g/L to 1.44 g/L by increasing the dye concentration from 0 to 1000 mg/L. The dye uptake increased from 4.37 to 233 mg/g… CONTINUE READING
