Phanerochaete chlysosporium decolourised molasses spent wash (MSW) (6.25% v/v) supplemented with glucose (25 g/l) by 85% after 10 days' incubation. Cells immobilised in calcium-alginate decolourised MSW much more rapidly than free cells but there was less overall colour decrease (59%) after 10 days.
