Abstract:

This article presents a study of the bacteria bioremediation characters and their heavy metal and antibiotic tolerance from the petroleum contaminated soil located in industrialized areas of Chhattisgarh, India. Soil sediments were characterized by FTIR for the presence of aromatic compounds and further the heterotrophic and fuel degrader counts was estimated. The strains characterized were predominantly from the Bacillus species which showed mixed resistance patterns against antibiotics and heavy metals. My results revealed that isolates Aneurinibacillus migulanus strain KTPP was most potent in degrading all the hydrocarbons and showed multiple resistance against heavy metals. Bacillus cereus strain BSP showed resistance against most heavy metals and also was the second most active bacteria to degrade the selected hydrocarbons. All the isolates except Bacillus cereus were resistance only to Penicillin G and Cefuroxime and sensitive to others which shows that the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes has not taken place.
