IntroductionEnvironmental safe and friendly management and disposal of wastewater sludge is a problem of every treatment plant throughout the world. Bioseparation and dewaterability of raw domestic wastewater sludge were evaluated for proper management and disposal by mycoremediation, i.e., using prior grown 2% (v/v) spore suspension of filamentous fungal (Mucor hiemalis Wehmer) broth inoculation, which were grown in 2% (w/v) solution of malt extract and wheat flour for 48–60 h in orbital… Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that augmentation of selective fungal biomass can be a potential method for CEPT sludge flocculation and dewaterability. Expand

Improved dewatering of CEPT sludge by biogenic flocculant from Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans.
TLDR
Investigation proves that bioleaching effectively improved the sludge dewaterability as evidenced from drastic reduction in capillary suction time and specific resistance to filtration, and indicates that rapid dewatering of CEPT sludge by biogenic flocculants provides an opportunity to replace the synthetic organic polymer for dewatered.

Enhancement of bioseparation and dewaterability of domestic wastewater sludge by fungal treated dewatered sludge.
TLDR
Fungal entrapped biosolids as a result of prior fungal treated raw wastewater sludge was recycled to evaluate its performance as inoculum for bioseparation/bioconversion of supplemented sludge in view of continuous as well as scale up Wastewater sludge treatment. Expand
Enhanced settleability and dewaterability of fungal treated domestic wastewater sludge by liquid state bioconversion process.
TLDR
The results to specific resistance to filtration (SRF) revealed that the fungal inoculum had significant potentiality to reduce SRF by 99.8% and 98.7% for 1% w/w and 4% w /w of TSS sludge, respectively. Expand
Biosolids accumulation and biodegradation of domestic wastewater treatment plant sludge by developed liquid state bioconversion process using a batch fermenter.
TLDR
The results showed that microbial treatment of higher strength of DWTP sludge was highly influenced by the liquid state bioconversion (LSB) process, and the specific resistance to filtration (SRF) in treatedsludge was decreased tremendously by the microbial treatment. Expand
Use of fungi to improve bioconversion of activated sludge.
TLDR
The results for specific resistance to filtration (SRF) showed that the fungi played a great role in enhancing the dewaterability and filterability and the developed LSB process is a new biotechnological approach for sludge management strategy. Expand
A potential resource for bioconversion of domestic wastewater sludge.
TLDR
The strains/isolates Aspergillus niger, SS-T2008, WW-P1003 and RW-P1 512 produced the highest dry biomass at higher sludge supplemented culture media from their respective group, which implied these strains are better adapted for growth at higherSludge rich substances, and subsequently may be efficient in bioconversion/biodegradation of sludge.

Advanced sludge treatment affects extracellular polymeric substances to improve activated sludge dewatering.
TLDR
From the experiments, it is concluded that AST methods enhance cake dewaterability in two ways: they degrade EPS proteins and polysaccharides reducing the EPS water retention properties; and they promote flocculation which reduces the amount of fine flocs. Expand
Screening and selection of microfungi for microbial biomass protein production and water reclamation from starch processing wastewater
TLDR
Thirty strains of microfungi and amylolytic yeasts were screened for production of microbial biomass protein (MBP) and water reclamation from starch processing wastewater (SPW) and typical pretreatment processes including hydrolysis, sterilisation and nutrient supplementation were unnecessary.

Biomass production and detoxification of wastewaters from the olive oil industry by strains of Penicillium isolated from wastewater disposal ponds
TLDR
Olive mill wastewater fermented with Penicillium P4 was devoid of its initial antibacterial activity against Bacillus megaterium ATCC 25848, and carried out an outstanding reduction of the chemical oxygen demand and the phenolic content of OMW, as well as a pH raise. Expand
