Biodegradation of Phenols Present in Effluent Wastewater of Steel Plant through Pseudomonas PutidaAuthor(s): Haritha Meruvu, B. Srinivasa Rao and Meena Vangalapati
Phenol is a hazardous industrial wastewater polluta nt. This project aims at the study of use of Pseudomonas putida for the efficient degradation of phenol, wh ich is treated at MBC treatment plant of Steel Plant. Further, the concentration of phenol in a given sample is calculated using Direct Photometric Method following sampling techniques. Another objective is that, the initial concentration of phenol in the effluent before and after treatment using bioremediation techniques chiefly employing Pseudomonas putida is also estimated.
