Enhanced carbonate precipitation of ureolytic and nitrifying microbe treated rubber wastewater

October 15, 2019
| Ongoing project
| Microbes

In an earlier project rubber wastewater discharge has been remediated with biofilm developed by microalgal and bacteria consortia isolated from waste. Lead findings are microalgae/bacteria either in planktonic or biofilm environment the wastewater pH rose from 4 to 12 in a week with substantial reduction of N, PO4, COD and TDS.
