The present study investigated the real potential of a crude extract produced by T. pubescens MUT 2400 with high laccases concentration, to degrade pharmaceuticals and recognized EDCs. The enzymatic treatment was applied toward a model solution and real municipal wastewater samples, containing some pharmaceutically active compounds. Laccases were able to extensively degrade all the tested compounds and an important detoxification of real wastewaters was also observed

Abstract

The present study investigated the real potential of a crude extract produced by T. pubescens MUT 2400 with high laccases concentration, to degrade pharmaceuticals and recognized EDCs. The enzymatic treatment was applied toward a model solution and real municipal wastewater samples, containing some pharmaceutically active compounds. Laccases were able to extensively degrade all the tested compounds and an important detoxification of real wastewaters was also observed
