Chromate and pentachlorophenol are major pollutants discharged through tanneries. Three bacteria resistant to high Cr(6+) and PCP concentrations simultaneously were isolated. The TVS-3 strain was tolerant to highest 850 mg l(-1) Cr(6+) and 1000 mg l(-1) PCP concentration and concomitantly reduced 69% Cr(6+) and degraded 72% PCP within 168 h at pH 7.5, 35 ± 1°C temperature, was selected and identified as Brevibacterium casei. At 168 h of growth, bacterium showed maximum PCP utilization of 720 mg… CONTINUE READING
