Abstract:

The potential for biological treatment of Cr (VI)- polluted wastewaters has attracted increased interest, because this alternative is more efficient and less expensive than conventional physicochemical treatments. In this work, a microbial enrichment capable of tolerating and reducing high Cr(VI) was isolated. The kinetic parameters of the Cr(VI) reduction process indicate that the enrichment culture has a significant potential for bioremediation of Cr(VI)-laden wastewaters.
