Abstract:
Botryosphaeria rhodina produced beta-glucan when grown on undiluted olive-mill wastewaters (OMW). The production of exopolysaccharide increased with the COD up to 17.2 g l-1 on the most loaded OMW (151 and 66 g l-1 of COD and total sugar, respectively). The total phenol content of OMW was reduced from 8 to 4.1 g l-1.
