Treatment of wastewater has been a hotspot of research since ages. Emerging technologies and methodologies have been postulated to resolve the issue worldwide. Almost 97.2% of our earth is covered with water bodies, out of which 12,500 water bodies are situated in India. As per the statistics, nearly 70% water bodies are polluted in Southern Asia. Presence of emerging pollutants exacerbate the quality of flowing water. Amongst all possible ways, microbial bioremediation has been considered one of the most thriving methods to treat wastewater. This research will manifest about the isolation of B. subtilis from soil followed by its characterisation and action in treatment of wastewater which was collected from industry. From the study, it was concluded that B. subtilis holds the potential of degradation. Significant decrease in values of BOD and COD were achieved.
