BIODEGRADATION OF NUTRIENT RICH TANNERY EFFLUENT USING CELL SUSPENSION OF PSEUDOMONAS PUTIDA
Tannery effluent samples rich in nutrient were collected from Ranipet, North Arcot District, Tamilnadu and analyzed for the physico-chemical parameters such as colour, pH, TDS, TSS, Chloride, Sulphide, Sulphate, Phosphorus and Nitrogen. The results showed that the above parameters exceeded the permissible limits prescribed by CPCB(1995). Biodegradation involves the use of microorganisms to degrade environmental contaminants, as microorganisms requires nitrogen and phosphorus as primary nutrients to degrade toxic compounds. In the present study Pseudomonas putida is used in biodegradation of tannery effluent and the results are discussed.
