The widely consumption of petrochemical as domestic and industrial product contributed to large production of petrochemical wastewater.The production of petrochemical wastewater generally consists of polycyclic and aromatic hydrocarbons,cyanide,oil,phenols,metal derivatives, sulphides,and other chemicals.Benzene,Toluene and Xylene are part of the aromatic hydrocarbon that contain in the petrochemical wastewater.The present of BTX in wastewater cause the severity and toxicity to the human,animal and environment.Thus this proposal will propose a proper treatment that should be constructed in order to obtain the standards that have been regulated by the Environment Protection Agency(EPA)before the industrial discharge the petrochemical wastewater.The chosen of Pseudomonas Putida as microorganism in biological treatment based on the ability to degrade the aromatic compound and produce a clean and safe treatment without compose other hazardous chemical after the treatment.The experiment that carryout in laboratory will study the effect of shaking speed, temperature shaker and ratio of bacteria to solvent BTX in order to reduce the concentration of BTX in the waste solution.The bacteria growth and percentage removal of BTX will analyze using UV-VIS Spectrophotometer and Gas Chromatography (GC).From the data obtain it show that the optimum condition for Pseudomonas Putida to achieve the highest percentage removal are 37OC,180rpm and1:9 ratio of bacteria to solvent used.Unfortunately,from the calculation obtain only.
