Abstract

A chemoheterotrophic bacterial consortium, capable of degrading thiocyanate, was isolated from sewage slurry by the enrichment culture technique. The bacterial consortium was composed of three bacterial species. Preliminary characterisation of microorganisms was carried out by microscopic examination and by studying colony characteristics. Investigations under laboratory conditions showed that the isolated bacterial consortium could degrade 50 mg/L of thiocyanate within a period of 40 hours with an efficiency of more than 99.9%.
