Abstract:

Pulp and paper industries are considered as one of the major polluters of the environment all over the world. These industries are the fifth largest contributor to water pollution. Pulping process, used for paper manufacturing leads to release of toxic chemicals or effluents into the environment and pollute water, air and soil therefore it is a major threat to ecosystem. A number of microbes have been found in the nearby soil of paper mill that are useful in the breakdown of environmental pollutants. Our approach was to demonstrate the presence of bacteria that are useful in the process of bioremediation. The indigenous bacterial species found in the soil sample nearby paper mill were Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Klebsiella, Proteus, Alcaligenes and Streptococcus out of which Pseudomonas, Bacillus and Alcaligenes have been found to be very useful in bioremediation process. Serial dilution, sub-culture, staining and biochemical testing were performed for the identification of bacterial species.
