- ... Fly ash (FA), the major by-product of coal-fired thermal power plants, causes significant environmental degradation owing to its injurious heavy metal contents. Leaching of arsenic (As) from ash ponds is especially significant as As released from FA can increase As concentration of drinking water above maximum contaminant level of 10 ppb. The aim of this paper was demonstration of As bioremediatio ...

- ... Eight chromium resistant bacteria were isolated from a dry fly ash sample of DVC-MTPS thermal power plant located in Bankura, West Bengal, India. These isolates displayed different degrees of chromate reduction under aerobic conditions. According to 16S rDNA gene analysis, five of them were Staphylococcus, two were Bacillus and one was Micrococcus. The minimum inhibitory concentration towards chro ...
