Heavy metal biosorption potential of Aspergillus and Rhizopus sp. isolated from wastewater treated soil



Heavy metal biosorption potential of Aspergillus and Rhizopus sp. isolated from wastewater treated soil



Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management 9(1): 123-126



Two isolates belonging to the predominant genera Aspergillus and Rhizopus isolated from agricultural field treated with sewage/industrial effluents were selected for the biosorption potential evaluation of Cr and Cd. Pretreated, dead biomass of above fungi was used for bioadsorption experiment at pH value 4.5 with the biomass, 1-5 mg in a 100 ml metal solution of different concentration (2, 4, 6 and 8 mM) with a contact time of 18 h and agitation of 120 rpm.
