PROJECT TOPIC: ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF MICRO ORGANISMS ASSOCIATED WITH BIO DEGRADATION OF THE AFRICAN WALNUT SHELLS USING CHICKEN DROPPINGS AS INNOCUOUS

Project Body:


Abstract Microbial analyses were carried out on the shell of the edible nuts of African walnut(Tetracarpidium conophorum). This study was aimed at determining the microbial load of boiledand raw African walnut shell and chicken dropping which can be used as inoculums inbiodegradation process in order to solve the problem of agro waste pollution in the environment.The nuts were sorted and washed with tap water to remove flesh residues and other contaminantsand divided into two lots. The first lot was boiled for 1.5 h. The second lot was used raw; the raw

nut and the boiled nut were then unshelled and the shells were dried at 60◦C for 5days in the oven.
