Abstract

A strain of Pseudomonas aeuriginosa MTCC 4997 isolated newly from effluents collected from petrochemical industries. The isolated strain was optimized for various operational and environmental conditions in batch culture. This strain was utilizes phenol as a sole source of carbon and energy, capable of degrading phenol up to 1400 mg l-1 concentration within 144 h.  Complete degradation was observed at wide temperature from 150C to 450C with an optimum of 370C and pH 6.0 to 10.5 with an optimum of 7.0 to 7.5. Metals such as Fe, Cd, Cu, Pb, Zn, Mn and Ba at lower concentrations were found stimulated and enhanced the rate of phenol degradation. Therefore, the phenol degradability of the strain can be maintained and used at large scale treatment.
