Toluene gas phase biofiltration by Paecilomyces lilacinus and isolation and identification of a hydrophobin protein produced thereof


Paecilomyces lilacinus consumed toluene as the sole carbon source in a gas-phase biofilter packed with perlite obtaining an average elimination capacity of 50 g m−3 h−1, a removal efficiency of 53%, and a final biomass of 31.6 mg biomass g dry support−1. Hydrophobin proteins from the mycelium produced in the biofilter were purified by formic acid extraction… (More)
