In vivo-decolorization of coal-derived humic acids by laccase-excreting fungus Trametes versicolor

Lignite (brown coal) can be liquefied/solubilized with several fungi by different mechanisms. When applied industrially, only catalytic mechanisms can compete with chemical methods. The well-known fungal ligninolytic peroxidases are at a disadvantage, in that the relatively expensive hydrogen peroxide must be used as a cofactor. Comparing several fungal strains, we observed that the fungus Trametes versicolor is able to decolorize coal-derived humic acids, producing a considerable amount of… CONTINUE READING
