Kolkata scientists use fungus to remove toxic chromium from tannery waste

The heat dried fungal biomass adsorbs toxic hexavalent chromium from untreated tannery waste and converts it into non-toxic trivalent chromium thus solving the problem of disposing toxic chromium waste. Removing hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] from industrial effluents, particularly untreated tannery waste, will become easier and more efficient, thanks to the work by a team of researchers from … Continue reading Kolkata scientists use fungus to remove toxic chromium from tannery waste
