Four different white rot fungi cultures were used for decolorization of five different textile dyestuffs. Phanerochaeta chrysosporium 671.71, P. chrysosporium MUCL, Coriolus versicolor and C, versicolor MUCL cultures effectively decolorized Everzol Yellow 4GL, Everzol Red RBN, D. Orange K-GL, Everdirect Supra yellow PG and Everzol Turquoise Blue G textile dyestuffs in shake flasks within 9 days of incubation period. Decolorization efficiencies obtained with P. chrysosporium were above 90% for all dyestuffs tested. C. versicolor cultures resulted in varying degree of decolorization efficiencies between 34% and 100%.
