Water is important for all the living things but nowdays, it has been polluted with inorganic contaminants which are discharged from industries.Manganese in drinking water is highly toxic to the living things and environment. Micro based technologies provides an alternative means to treat manganese and recover metal for economic reasons or environmental protection. The capacity of Bacillus circulans, isolated from industrial effluent to grow and concentrate metal from the different concentrations of Manganese (0.2 mM
