Abstract
Numerous industrial applications raised chromium to a very important economic element. At the same time, with the development of its uses, the adverse effects of chromium compounds in human health were being investigated. Both acute and chronic toxicity of chromium are mainly caused by hexavalent compounds. The present study deals with the removal of hexavalent chromium compound using bioremediation by an acclimated mixed culture developed from activated sludge. The acclimatization of culture was carried out for a period of 6 days by decreasing the amount of glucose from 1000 mg/l to 0 mg/l with a decrement of 200 mg/l every day and increasing Cr (VI) concentration accordingly by the same amount. At the end of the period, the biomass concentration obtained for final amount of pure Cr (VI) was 0.0187 g/50 ml of solution. The effect of one of the major operating parameters, contact time on bioremediation of Cr (VI) by acclimated mixed culture was also studied in a batch mode. This study had been conducted for an initial Cr (VI) concentration ranging from 20-80 mg/L and pH ranging from 2-10. Increase in initial Cr (VI) concentration from 20 mg/L to 80 mg/L showed increase in Cr (VI) uptake. Experimental investigation also showed that percent removal of Cr (VI) exceeding 94% at the initial concentration of 80 mg/L of Cr (VI) and pH 7.
