Biodegradation of Engine Oil by Agaricus campestris (A White Rot Fungus)

The white rot fungus Agaricus campestris collected from the wild in Lagos State Nigeria was cultured in minimal salt medium (MSM) contaminated with engine oil with the aim of investigating its degradative potential. The Indiscriminate disposal of spent engine oil by motor mechanics and other workers in Nigeria necessitated this research. The mushroom was grown in minimal salt medium for 30 days with the engine oil as its sole carbon source. The optical densities at 530 and 620 nm of engine oil contaminated MSM seeded with A. campestris and engine oil contaminated MSM not seeded with the mushroom was recorded for 30 days.
