Abstract:

Environmental pollution has been recognized as one of the major problems of the modern world. The increasing demand for water and the dwindling supply has made the treatment and reuse of industrial effluents as an attractive option. Halophilic bacterial isolates, TVU-AO6 and TVU-AO4 were found to be the efficient strains exhibiting maximum decolorization efficiency towards Acid Orange and they were selected for the development of consortium TVU-AO 64. On optimization studies, the halophilic bacterial consortium exhibited maximum decolorization efficiency at 35°C, Slightly alkaline pH 8 and static condition after 24 h of incubation in the presence of sucrose and yeast extract as suitable carbon and nitrogen sources respectively.
