Abstract:

Sulphur is an essential nutritional element for plants, animals, microorganisms and humans; as it is integral component of many compounds including protein. Sulphur is metabolized into different forms with the help of sulphur oxidizing bacteria, which use sulphur as energy producing ingredient. Sulphur oxidizing bacteria have an interesting property of adaptability in wide range of habitats. Due to this property they have many applications in different fields like for improving quality of crops, bioleaching and extraction of metals from ores, in waste water treatment plants, for removal of hydrogen sulphide gas, concrete bridge structure and for bioremediation etc.
