Abstract: Tensile strength, elongation, per centage extension, CFU, BOD and turbidity of plastics are assessed to study the extent of degradation of low density polyethylene (LDP) and polypropylene (PP) using Pseudomonas stutzeri under laboratory test conditions. Throughout the investigation both the plastic types are found to undergo qualitative and quantitative changes by bacteria but PP is found to be more biodegradable as compared to LDP.
