Autotrophic bacteria:

A bacteria that used inorganic materials as its sources of nutrients and carbon dioxide as the sole source of carbon is called Autotrophic bacteria.

Heterotrophic bacteria:

The reduction of Carbon dioxide is a very energy-expensive process. Some bacteria use reduced, preformed organic molecules such as glucose as the carbon source. These are called Heterotrophic bacteria.
