BIOACCUMULATION OF HEAVY METALS BY FUNGI

VAISHALY A.G, BLESSY B. MATHEW*, N.B. KRISHNAMURT

Increased industrial activity and demand for heavy metals like copper, lead, mercury, manganese, zinc cadmium and many more has increased the global quantity of heavy metal contaminated wastewater. Current technologies employed to remove metals present in low concentration from waste water through the process like precipitation and ion exchange are often expensive and inefficient. The need for an inexpensive and efficient system has generated interest in the study of biosorption and bioaccumulation processes in fungi as possible systems for metal removal.It is one of the future challenges of environmental biotechnology for metal winning process which are based on closed cycle carried out with ecologically sustainable techniques.
