The article focuses on using Pseudomonas bacterial cultures for wastewater remediation. These bacterial strains are naturally occurring microbes that have been isolated for their performance at eliminating recalcitrant compounds prevalent in wastewater. Some members of the genus Pseudomonas can also be used for bioremediation as they can metabolize chemical pollutants in the environment. Pseudomonas was found to be highly efficient way to extract mercury from polluted wastewater.
