Entrapment of white-rot fungus Trametes versicolor in Ca-alginate beads: preparation and biosorption kinetic analysis for cadmium removal from an aqueous solution

The biosorption of cadmium ions onto entrapped Trametes versicolor mycelia has been studied in a batch system. The maximum experimental biosorption capacities for entrapped live and dead fungal mycelia of T. versicolor were found as 102.3±3.2 mg Cd(II) g −1 and 120.6±3.8 mg Cd(II) g −1 , respectively. Biosorption equilibrium was established in about 1 h and biosorption was well described by the Langmuir and Freundlich biosorption isotherms. The change in the biosorption capacity with time was found to fit the pseudo-second-order equation. Since the biosorption capacities were relatively high for both entrapped live and dead forms, those fungal forms could be considered as suitable biosorbents for the removal of cadmium in wastewater-treatment systems. The biosorbents were reused in three consecutive adsorption/desorption cycles without a significant loss in the biosorption capacity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Bioresource Technology Elsevier
