SCREENING AND IDENTIFICATION OF LOW-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (LDPE) DEGRADING MICROORGANISM FROM MUNICIPAL LANDFILL SOIL

Author(s): R. Pramila and K. Vijaya Ramesh
Abstract: Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a recalcitrant thermoplastic used in manufacturing of plastic bags, disposable cups and so on. It is non-degradable substance and it is the environmental pollution causing agent. The current research focused on evaluation of degradation of Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) by bacteria isolated from municipal dump soil by performing baiting technique clear zone plate assay and BATH test. We identified the bacterial strain as Bacillus species by gram staining and endospore staining method.
