In our study, we have isolated a relatively newly identified bacteria species, Pandoraea pulmonicola YC32, and first assessed its capability to treat malachite green (MG). The effects of various factors on decolorization efficiency were investigated in a batch system. The decolorization efficiency was found to be optimal within a pH of 7-10 and it increased, with increasing initial MG concentration up to 100 mg/l. The relationship between the decolorization rate and MG concentration agreed with… CONTINUE READING
