A new ‘metal eating’ bacteria discovered by scientists at Ba
Scientists at the IIT-BHU, have discovered a bacteria that can separate toxic cancer-causing metal "hexavalent chromium" from water and make it safe for use. The researchers have tested the hexavalent chromium removal capacity of this bacterial strain in industrial and synthetic wastewater and found satisfactory results. This research is focused on the cost-effective and eco-friendly method for the removal of toxic metal ions such as hexavalent chromium from water. Bacteria can easily cultivate and remove hexavalent chromium in an effective way. No skilled labor is required for culturing bacterial strain. It is very inexpensive, non-toxic, and easy to use.
