Improving the availability of oxygen by adding polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMS) oxygen carriers to Trametes versicolor cultures increased pulp brightening. The presence of the oxygen carriers in cultures of T. versicolor with hardwood kraft pulp increased the growth rate of the fungus, but not the ultimate biomass yield. The PDMS also stimulated brightening of hardwood kraft pulp by it T. versicolor immobilized in polyurethane foam. A threefold increase in the oxygen uptake rate in T. versicolor… CONTINUE READING
