The objective of this study was to investigate the decolorization capacity of Spirulina platensis. The study was performed in Zarrouk media and as dye material azo-dyes such as Reactive Yellow, Reactive Red, Reactive Black 5 and Basic Red 46 were used. After 240 hour of incubation, the decolorization rates were %44.4, %26.21, %50.1 and %96.48 respectively. Due to these results, the study was continued with Basic Red 46. Optimum physiological conditions for decolorization, such as incubation period, media pH, inoculum amount, dye concentration, static or rotational incubation, were investigated. All experiments were carried out for 240 hours. While the optimal pH value for color remover was detected as 9.0, in the 96th hour of incubation and at 40°C the decolorization rate was 96.7%. For Basic Red 46 color remover, static incubation was more effective when compared to rotational conditions.
