Bioremediation of Methylene Blue from Synthetic Wastewater using Immobilized Cyanobacterial Consortium Beads

Aratrika Ghosh*, Vipul Singh, Mani Ratan: Bioremediation of Methylene Blue from Synthetic Wastewater using Immobilized Cyanobacterial Consortium Beads. In: International Transaction on Engineering & Science, 1 (4), pp. 26-29, 2019.

Abstract

Treating wastewater to remove dye economically and ecofriendly is a need of the hour. Since methylene blue is being used by various industries and has various environmental problems and health hazards associated with it, therefore it has been selected for the present case. Present study aims at bioremediation of methylene blue from synthetic wastewater using a calcium alginate immobilized cyanobacterial consortium collected from local pond nearby the campus of CVRCE, Bhubaneshwar, India. Growth study of the strain has been done. Optimization of methylene blue removal has been done by varying its initial concentration in the range of 25-75 mg/L. Maximum removal of 93% has been observed in the study using the immobilized beads in a batch process.
