Abstract

The ability of several white-rot fungal strains to remove and detoxify acetone extractives (pitch or resin) in Scots pine sapwood was investigated in stationary laboratory batch assays. Fungal pretreatment provided up to 62% total pitch reduction and significant decreases in pitch toxicity. The best strains were Bjerkandera sp. strain BOS55, Stereum hirsutum and Trametes versicolor that eliminated over 93% of the problematic triglyceride fraction and 58-87% of other lipophilic extractive classes in only 2 weeks. Fungal removal of the wood extractives was accompanied by a 7.4-16.9-fold decrease in their inhibitory effect, as determined in the Microtox bioassay. Wood pretreatment by Bjerkandera sp. and T. versicolor caused limited losses of woody mass (less than 4% in 4 weeks); whereas S. hirsutum led to somewhat higher mass losses (7% in 4 weeks). These results indicate the potential of white rot fungi to control pitch deposition problems in pulping and to reduce the aquatic toxicity caused by naturally-occurring lipophilic extractives in forest industry effluents.
