Influence of Temperature and Carbon Source Concentration on the Bioremedial Capacity of Pseudomonas Spp Against Cadmium and Lead

  • Ramirez Cando, Lenin Javier (PI)

Project Details


General objective Identify the best conditions of temperature, pH and carbon source concentration by which Pseudomonas luteola is able to remove cadmium and lead from water at the laboratory level. Justification Considering that the insertion of bacteria can further affect the ecological environment of an area, modifying the food chain, a phenomenon that can lead to serious environmental problems. The bioremediation process with native bacteria can greatly alleviate heavy metal contamination, and above all, it is necessary to provide the basic information to develop the methodology for the use of Pseudomonas spp as a remedial agent. The heavy metals selected for the study are, along with others such as mercury, one of the most common contaminants of water and soil in our country.
