Biosorption of heavy metals by using free and immobilized cells of Bacillus
subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

The level of heavy metals is constantly increasing in drinking water, air and soil. Three heavy metals such as copper,
chromium and mercury were used in the present study and the heavy metal biosorption was analyzed using free and
immobilized cells of Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, isolated from industrial waste water. The results of the
present study suggest that the biosorption of heavy metal could be achieved by using Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas
aeruginosa and they could be successfully used for the treatment of waste water
