The removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from aqueous culture medium by the lignin-degrading marine fungus NIOCC # 312, obtained from decaying seagrass from a coral reef lagoon is reported here. We estimated the percentage of phenanthrene removed from the culture supernatant and the fungal biomass after 6 days. About 60-70% of phenanthrene, at a concentration of 12 mg l (12 ppm) was removed from the culture medium containing live or heat-killed fungus, as estimated by fluorescence… CONTINUE READING
