Phlebia tremellosa decolourised eight synthetic textile dyes (200 mg l(-1)) by greater than 96% within 14 days under stationary incubation conditions. High performance liquid chromatography analysis of culture supernatants indicated that Remazol Black B was degraded by the fungus, however, complete mineralisation did not occur as a colourless organic breakdown product accumulated. Laccase activity was detectable in culture supernatants after 5 days when the fungus was grown in the presence of an artificial textile effluent, with activity reaching a maximum of 15 U l(-1) on day 14.
