Active biomass for different strains were generated using with inoculums medium (Nutrient Broth) and this active biomass were checked for cellulose production using with production medium (NAM+CMC) & pH was adjusted at 7.0.
Project Description : This project replaces six (6) manually operated gates at the Wastewater Treatment Plant that are used to divert wastewater into different units of the biological treatment process and two (2) mixers that are used to combine the active biomass with incoming waste and keep the mixture from settling out.
