Abstract:

Soil samples were collected from various dumping sites of five (5) districts i.e. Solan, Bilaspur, Hamirpur, Mandi and Kangra of Himachal Pradesh. The soil samples were used for isolation of plastic degrading microorganism on M9 media enriched with Polyethylene glycol as sole carbon source. Twenty three (23) isolates have been isolated using two concentrations of Polyethylene glycol (PEG) i.e. 0.5 percent and 1 percent. The incubated plates further treated with Coomassies blue Rg-250 dye to observe the zone of clearance. Out of 23 isolates on the basis of zone of clearance two (2) isolates were selected as elite plastic degraders viz., PDBH1 and PDBM 2 for further investigation.
