Identification of the main mechanisms involved in the tolerance and bioremediation of Cr(VI) by Bacillus sp. SFC 500-1E
Chromium pollution is a problem that affects different areas worldwide and, therefore, must be solved. Bioremediation is a promising alternative to treat environmental contamination, but findingExpand

Laboratory and field microcosms as useful experimental systems to study the bioaugmentation treatment of tannery effluents.
Tannery effluents require effective treatment prior to their final disposal, and the use of native bacterial consortia could be an appropriate strategy for this purpose. In the present work,Expand

An approach to study ultrastructural changes and adaptive strategies displayed by Acinetobacter guillouiae SFC 500-1A under simultaneous Cr(VI) and phenol treatment
Acinetobacter guillouiae SFC 500-1A, a native bacterial strain isolated from tannery sediments, is able to simultaneously remove high concentrations of Cr(VI) and phenol. In this complementary study,Expand

Impact assessment of bioaugmented tannery effluent discharge on the microbiota of water bodies
Effluents are commonly discharged into water bodies, and in order for the process to be as environmentally sound as possible, the potential effects on native water communities must be assessedExpand
Polyphasic characterization and identification of the bioremediation agent Bacillus sp. SFC 500-1E.
Bacillus sp. SFC 500-1E is used for the effective treatment of tannery effluents since it consistently removes hexavalent chromium from diverse contaminated matrices. The aim of the present study wasExpand
Biohybrid membranes for effective bacterial vehiculation and simultaneous removal of hexavalent chromium (CrVI) and phenol.
The aim of the present study was to obtain an effective vehiculation system in which bacterial agents could maintain viability improving their removal capacity. Herein, we present a novel biohybridExpand
