|Abstract:||This study presents characterization and decolourization of wastewater using white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Fungus could decolourize undiluted wastewater to an extent of only 35% in 6 days. However, when wastewater was supplemented with medium containing glucose, high decolourization efficiency ( 84%) could be achieved. Enzyme activities of lignin peroxidase (LiP) and manganese peroxidase (MnP) produced by fungus were three and ten times respectively higher with the wastewater supplemented with medium containing glucose than with pure wastewater. Thus white rot fungus proved excellent potential in decolourization of wastewater following suitable pretreatment to suit its growth and enzyme activities.|
