Abstract: <smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="City"><smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="place"> This study presents effects of biomass concentration, dye concentration, agitation time, initial pH and temperature on dye (Methyl Orange) removal by dead fungal biomass of <i>Humicola fuscoatra</i>. Biosorption capacity was found dependent mainly on dye and adsorbent dosage. Highest adsorption efficiency was achieved with fungal biomass at 0.5g/l. Dye concentration (100 mg/ l) was found optimum for maximum dye removal. At acidic pH (3-5) and 30 C, Methyl Orange biosorption increased significantly in first 6 h. </smarttagtype></smarttagtype>
