FUNGAL DIGESTION OF DEPROTEINIZED LEAF JUICE FROM THE TWO AQUATIC PLANTS TO CONTROL ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION

SUNANDA CHANDA

Abstract

The noxious aquatic vegetation on earth's surface having considerable photosynthetic efforts, has been regarded as a potential crop for leaf protein production rather than biological nuisance. The liquid byproduct loaded with organic oxidizable and biodegradable nutrients, released during commercial production of leaf protein from such aquatic resources, was further treated with two filamentous fungi with a view to reduce the pollutant parameters of this particular food processing waste before releasing it into any aquatic environment the two natural contaninants such as Penicilliurn purpurogenum and spicaria elegans efficiently and progressively reduced the COD (72-81%) simultaneously and yielded biomass with high protein percentage i.e. 26-32% per 100g of dry myceli urn.
