DELIGNIFICATION OF PULP AND PAPER MILL EFFLUENT USING ISOLATED FUNGI ASPERGILLUS NIGER AND ASPERGILLUS FLAVUSDHANUSHREE M.S., HINA KOUSAR, VINUTHA M., SPOORTHI C. AND
Pulp and paper mill is considered as one of the important contributor to industrial water pollution. The waste water generated is highly polluted and responsible for a number of hazards. The effluent is rich in lignin cellulosic materials which induces dark coloration in effluent. Fungal isolates Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus were used for delignification of paper mill effluent. Treatment systems were operated under room temperature and aerobic condition. Results confirmed that Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus showed best degradation potential for lignin.
