Wastewaters from the fruit packaging industry contain a high pesticide load and require treatment before their environmental discharge. We provide first evidence for the potential bioremediation of these wastewaters. Three white rot fungi (WRF) (Phanerochaete chrysosporium, Trametes versicolor, Pleurotus ostreatus) and an Aspergillus niger strain were tested in straw extract medium (StEM) and soil extract medium (SEM) for degrading the pesticides thiabendazole (TBZ), imazalil (IMZ), thiophanate… Expand
Integrated biodepuration of pesticide-contaminated wastewaters from the fruit-packaging industry using biobeds: Bioaugmentation, risk assessment and optimized management.
TLDR
Biobeds showed high depuration capacity against all pesticides with bioaugmentation maximizing their depuration performance against the persistent fungicide thiabendazole (TBZ), followed by a significant increase in the abundance of bacteria, fungi and of catabolic genes of aromatic compounds catA and pcaH.

Bioremediation of Insecticides by White-Rot Fungi and Its Environmental Relevance
TLDR
The ability to form spore during unfavourable condition makes white-rot fungi a better organism as compared to bacteria as they are more persistent, and this article mainly focuses on the use of white- rot fungi for biodegradation of insecticides. Expand
The potential of organic substrates based on mushroom substrate and straw to dissipate fungicides contained in effluents from the fruit-packaging industry - Is there a role for Pleurotus ostreatus?
TLDR
Biobeds packed with SMS-rich substrates could ensure the efficient removal of IMZ and OPP from wastewaters of citrus FPP, suggesting an inhibitory effect of fungicides on total fungi in the substrate tested. Expand
Characterization of the biodegradation, bioremediation and detoxification capacity of a bacterial consortium able to degrade the fungicide thiabendazole
TLDR
Overall, the bacterial consortium showed high potential for future implementation in bioremediation and biodepuration applications, and showed a progressive decrease in cytotoxicity, concomitantly with the biodegradation of TBZ, pointing to a detoxification process. Expand
Elimination of fungicides in biopurification systems: Effect of fungal bioaugmentation on removal performance and microbial community structure.
TLDR
No clear enhancement of the biomixture performance could be ascribed to fungal bioaugmentation, not even after the re-inoculation of fungal biomass, and data suggest that the non-bioaugmented biomixture is useful for the treatment of fungicides other than triazoles. Expand
Ecotoxicological test based on inhibition of fungal laccase activity: Application to agrochemicals and the monitoring of pesticide degradation processes.
TLDR
A toxicity test based on the inhibition of laccase enzymatic activity in the fungus Trametes versicolor is developed, which increases the battery of available bioassays to determine the toxicity of agrochemicals, and provides an interesting tool to monitor biodegradation processes. Expand
Biodegradation of 3,4 dichloroaniline by fungal isolated from the preconditioning phase of winery wastes subjected to vermicomposting.
TLDR
This study highlights the metabolic potential of microorganisms in the preconditioning period of the vermicomposting process and its possible application for in situ bioremediation strategies. Expand
Degradation alternatives for a commercial fungicide in water: biological, photo-Fenton, and coupled biological photo-Fenton processes
TLDR
The concentration of H2O2 necessary to eliminate IMZ by photo-Fenton and to reduce TOC and chemical oxygen demand (COD) by biological treatment, in order to allow the release of the effluents to rivers with different flows, was estimated. Expand
On-farm biopurification systems: role of white rot fungi in depuration of pesticide-containing wastewaters.
TLDR
This minireview summarizes the potential participation of white rot fungi in BPS and presents the potential use of WRF in biodegradation of pollutants, particularly pesticides, and includes a brief description of the enzymatic systems involved in their oxidation. Expand

Degradation of contrasting pesticides by white rot fungi and its relationship with ligninolytic potential.
TLDR
The capacity of nine species of white rot fungus from a variety of basidiomycete orders to degrade contrasting mono-aromatic pesticides was investigated and there were significant positive correlations between the rates of degradation of the different pesticides. Expand
Enzymatic activity, osmotic stress and degradation of pesticide mixtures in soil extract liquid broth inoculated with Phanerochaete chrysosporium and Trametes versicolor.
TLDR
The results suggest that T. versicolor and P. chrysosporium have the ability to degrade different groups of pesticides, supported by the capacity for expression of a range of extracellular enzymes at both -0.7 and -2.8 MPa water potential. Expand
