    Author(s): Khan MR*, Manchur MA, Mahmud N and Fatama B

    This study focused on the isolation and identification of potential dye degrading bacteria from tannery effluent. The ability of these bacteria to decolorize three leather dyes viz. black, brown and red dyes were also examined. Based on morphological, cultural, physiological and biochemical properties, isolates were provisionally identified up to species level as Pseudomonas putida (RS1A), Bacillus sphaericus (RS1B), Bacillus brevis (RS1C), Pseudomonas stutzeri (RS1D), Alcaligenes eutrophus (RS1E), Listeria denitrificans (RS2A), Listeria grayi (RS2B), Listeria murrayi (RS2C), Bacillus coagulans (RS2D) and Listeria monocytogenes (RS2E). In dye decolorization study, Pseudomonas stutzeri (RS1D) completely decolorized 1000 ppm black dye within 8 days. Listeria monocytogenes.. Read More»
