Microbes like CRS Staphylococcus SeLB4 and Bacillus megaterium isolated from the sludge of Electroplating industry Satpur Nashik, Maharashtra are found highly effective for bioreduction of carcinogenic Cr(VI) present in effluent of electroplating Industry. In present study investigation and optimization of conditions for effective bioremediation of Chromium-VI from electroplating industrial effluent has been done. Bioremediation is the most promising, eco-friendly and cost effective technology widely used now a days for detoxification of toxic industrial pollutants and soil.
Community forestry has a significant role in the lives of people in Nepal as it serves the livelihood security of people to a greater extent. It is central in ensuring community participation in all the stages of CF (Community forestry) process and thus reach the objectives of sustainable forest management. However, it is quite difficult to address the interests of all users and to ensure the participation of all stakeholders in the decentralised forest management process. Moreover, it is evident that people need motivation to participate in any activities. Therefore the present study is focused on the dynamics of participation in forest management, especially on the link between distribution of benefits, and the level of participation of members, by exploring the process of institutional management and community governance. The study was undertaken in 178 households of Kankali community forestry, in Chitwan district of Nepal. The results revealed that availabilty of the benefits do not have direct relation with neither paricipation in activities nor in decision making. Though motivation is a prerequisite to activate participation of people in any activity, other methods of persuasion is also vital to continue its pace. Whereas, to influence decision making process, other individual characteristics including nature, leadership quality, experience, knowledge etc. may have great control and can determine the participation dynamics which needs to be studied further.
Emami Paper Mill Ltd. at Balgopalpur industrial area produces a huge amount of fly ash and waste water to the environment. The application of disposed fly ash and waste water in crop cultivation may reduce the problem to some extent. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of direct land application of fly ash on plant growth and production of rice (Oriza sativa). In the fly ash experiment the 70% soil cultivated with 30% of fly ash show good result and in case of waste water, the plot irrigated with 75% normal water and 25% treated waste water show very good result as compare to the control plot. This study indicates the safe utilization of fly ash in agriculture practice to solve the problem to some extent and the use of diluted treated waste water for irrigation purpose also may reduce the waste water discharge problem.
