B. VINAY KUMAR AND V. VENKATA RAMANA

Abstract

One strain of phototrophic purple non-sulfur bacterium belongs to the genus Rhodopseudomonas was enriched, isolated from the activated sludge of JETL (Jeedimetla Effluent Treatment Limited) Hyderabad. Along with morphological, physiological characteristics, studies on the effect of augmentation with bacterial culture isolated in the anerobic treatment of industrial effluent, which has resulted in 88.7% more COD (chemical oxygen demand) reduction compared to control in 5 days, with a simultaneous increase in the biomass, indicated its significant role in anaerobic waste water treatment.
