Molasses melanoidin (MM) is a major pollutant in biomethanated distillery spent wash (BMDS) due to its recalcitrant properties. The 75% colour and 71% COD of MM (1,000 ppm) were reduced with developed bacterial consortium comprising Proteus mirabilis (IITRM5; FJ581028), Bacillus sp. (IITRM7; FJ581030), Raoultella planticola (IITRM15; GU329705) and(More)
Two PCP-degrading bacterial strains, Bacillus cereus (ITRC-S6) and Serratia marcescens (ITRC-S7) were used for the treatment of pulp and paper mill effluent at conditions; 1.0% glucose and 0.5% peptone at 30 +/- 1 degrees C at 120 rpm for 168 h of incubation. These two bacterial strains effectively reduced colour (45-52%), lignin (30-42%), BOD (40-70%), COD(More)
A comparative bioaccumulation pattern and ultra structural changes were studied in Phragmites cummunis, Typha angustifolia and Cyperus esculentus in mixed metals solution of cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), nickel (Ni), lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn). P. cummunis was observed to be a shoot accumulator for Cr, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and(More)
Experiments were carried out to study the effect of distillery sludge amendments with garden soil (10, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100%) on seed germination and growth parameters of Phaseolus mungo L. Germination percentage and index values decreased with rise in sludge concentration. Soil amended with 10% (w/w) sludge showed favorable growth while >10% was(More)
Chenopodium ambrosioides L., commonly known as Mexican tea or American wormwood or West Indian Goosefoot or Epazote (family Chenopodiaceae), is a native of Central and South America and now distributed throughout the tropical parts of the world. It is an aromatic plant with grooved red-colored stem and oblong-lanceolate and toothed leaves, green flowers,(More)
In the present study, 12 aerobic bacterial strains were isolated from the common effluent treatment plant (CETP) of tannery industries and identified as Alcaligenes sp. (FJ55942), Pantoea sp. (FJ55943), Bacillus megaterium (FJ55944), B. marisflavi (FJ55945), B. subtilis (FJ55946), B. megaterium (FJ55947), B. cereus (FJ55948), B. pumilus (FJ55949),(More)
In order to search the degradability of kraft lignin, the potential bacterial strains Bacillus subtilis (GU193980) and Klebsiella pneumoniae (GU193981) were isolated, screened and applied in axenic and co-culture conditions. Results revealed that mixed culture showed better decolorization efficiency (80%) and reduction of pollution parameters (COD 73% and(More)
The use of wild mushrooms for food in all probability began with the prehistoric man. During the long period human as a hunter gathered the fungi of the forest that has served as an important source of nourishment. There are many edible mushrooms i.e. Volvarias, Polypores and tubers fungi that used ethnobotanical food by the tribal of forest regions. These(More)
Numerical analysis of Partial Differential Equations (PDE's) of the solid mechanics using Finite Element Method (FEM) is very popular. One issue which is haunting the finite element solution is the computer time. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using fine mesh and large number of nodes consumes lot of solution time. To overcome this difficulty, a hybrid(More)
With the rapid growth in space technology, space exploration is on the high demand. With each such type of mission, data is accumulating in heaps. Be it manned or unmanned mission, its credibility is defined by the quality of research which can be conducted on the data collected in such missions through remote or on the capsule experiments. Thus there is(More)
