Abstract:

Today cyanobacteria are widely used in bioremediation of industrial effluents. Hence the present study was attempted to analyse the effect of individual and combination effect of Cyanobacterial species isolated from Mukkumbu, the River Cauvery on bioremediation of pollutants. Results indicate that all the species showed the ability to degrade pollutants. However, the growth and degradable abilities were found to differ in different species, pollutant concentration and exposure; while the Cyanobacterial combination performed better at low concentrations, individual organisms recorded higher degradability at higher concentration. Thus, the results clearly demonstrate the ability of the organisms to degrade the pollutants. However, the growth and degradable abilities were found to differ among the species, pollutant concentration as well as the exposure time.
