Mycelial wastes of microbial origin from fermentation industries have been recognized as potential biosorbents for decontamination of waste waters containing heavy metals. Dried, nonliving, granulated biomass of Streptoverticillium cinnamoneum was used for the recovery of lead and zinc from solutions. It was found that pretreatment of the biomass with boiling water for 15 min increased the biosorption of lead and zinc by 52 and 41%, respectively. The optimum pH range for lead uptake was 3.5-4.5… CONTINUE READING
