As well as being known as blue-green algae, cyanobacteria. The majority are found in habitats that include soil, freshwater, and saltwater. Cyanobacteria can be used for bioremediation of a number of contaminants, including heavy metals, pesticides, crude oil, phenanthrene, naphthalene, and phenol. In this study, cyanobacteria from a particular species were collected from rice field soil in the Nuapada district of Odisha in order to examine their capacity to absorb heavy metals (NiSO4). The results show that among the tested organisms, Anabaena oryzae and Nostoc linckia are more efficient at eliminating NiSO4 from the environment, whereas Cylindrospermum indicum is less efficient. Additionally, it has been found that the OAEAGPS value, which stands for Over All Electro Absorption Great Point System, is useful in selecting species for industrial bioremediation programs.
Keywords: Cyanobacteria, NiSO4, OAEAGPS, Metal Absorption, Bioremediation.
