|Title:||Removal of copper by Pseudomonas putida strain S4 isolated from copper mines|
Gowri, P. Mangala
|Abstract:||A bacterial strain, Pseudomonas putida S4, was isolated from smelter drainage of copper mines. The strain exhibited resistance to several heavy metals, like aluminium (AI), zinc (Zn), nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co) besides copper (Cu). Strain S4 could accumulate Cu from the Cu-supplemented growth medium. In the present study, we have demonstrated the Cu2+ removal capacity of this strain from various samples such as mine effluent, low-grade ore and ore-tailings, collected from the mining site. Moreover, ~80% of the accumulated Cu2+ could be recovered from the loaded biomass by a simple desorption procedure.|
