Abstract

Dye is extensively used in industries, such as textile, paper printing, food and leather. Meanwhile, dye causes significant effects to living organisms and the environment. Current dye treatment methods are insignificant in decolorization of dye due to dye is highly persistent. Efficiency in decolorization of dye is a challenge for industries as well as for wastewater treatment systems. This paper focuses on mycoremediation dye treatment method which is a sustainable treatment method and leads to green technology. This study explores on mycoremediation efficiency and processes for dye decolorization. The gap of study on fungal mixed culture shapes future study direction of dye decolorization.
