Abstract: Radial growth on various agar media (potato dextrose agar, nutrient agar and agars containing glycerin, olive oil, soy oil, diesel oil, kerosene, hexane or toluene) was used to assess the filamentous fungi Aspergillus fumigatus as well as an unidentified Penicillium species and two unidentified isolates (EFB1 and FL3A) for use in bioremediation and in the treatment of oily effluents. The EFB1 isolate gave the most rapid radial growth, which was 0.481 mm.h -1 on nutrient agar, 0.432 mm.h-1 on glycerin agar, 0.431 mm.h-1 on diesel oil agar and 0.420 mm.h-1 on olive oil agar. For comparison, A. fumigatus gave a radial growth rate of 0.394 mm.h -1 on potato dextrose agar.
