In the present study, the propagation of a newly isolated Gliocladium viride ZIC2063 for maximum mycelium formation is checked. This is the first report on the optimization of Gliocladium viride ZIC2063 cultural conditions to get high mycelium concentrations that is to be used in further biosorption process. The mould mycelium was exploited as biosorbent. The present study was designed to optimize culture medium and other cultural conditions (pH, temperature, incubation time, inoculum age and size) for the growth of fungal culture as biosorbent. The amount of mycelium was doubled due to optimization. The Gliocladium viride ZIC2063, being high chromium resistant, thermostable and acid stable, can find application in the treatment of tanning effluent of leather industry and combating
