Reduction in physicochemical parameters in pulp and paper effluents by adapted bacterias Sanganer area


Bhupendra Singh Chouhan


Environment biotechnology an important branch of biotechnology, deals with the detection of environmental contaminants contained in industrial, agriculture and domestic wastes and the remediation of the pollution caused by contamination. The study of this discipline primarily spans 2 main areas; environment science & biotechnology. Environment biotechnology involves applying the knowledge of biotechnology to solve environment problems. Environmental problems can be found in all areas of the world, and they affect land, air and water. Heavy metals are discharged from various industries such as electroplating, metal finishing, textile, storage batteries, mining, ceramic and glass. The present study was carried out to assess the quality of contaminated water of paper and pulp industry. The data obtained for the physico-chemical properties of the water sample, when compared, were not in the range of permissible limits indicating that the water was polluted.
Bacterial strains were isolated from effluent of paper and pulp industry of sanganer city, Jaipur by selective enrichment technique. Nutrient agar was used in enrichment technique supplemented with 0. 1% chromium metal. The data shows that isolated microorganisms belonged to sp., Micrococcus sp. and Staphylococcus sp. and were studied for their biodegradation potential for chromium. Most literatures found that effective indigenous isolates secreates organic acids and enzymes for utilization and degradation of xenobiotics compounds.
