Abstract

Because of due to its low vapor pressure, longer half life (180 to 360 days) and apparently low biodegradability, atrazine has contaminated the terrestrial ecosystems and has been detected in ground and surface waters in many countries beyond permissible limits. Several fungi, bacteria and algae have been already reported as effective biosorbents for removal of dyes, metals and even pesticides due to its low cost, non-toxic approach, regeneration capability and high efficiency for pollutant uptake. This study aims to develop a bacterial biomass which can be used as adsorbent to remove the atrazine from wastewater.
