Textile dyeing industry produces huge quantities of wastewater with unfixed dyes, which generate colour and toxicity in discharged water, creating environmental pollution.
Decolourization of the synthetic dye mixture and textile industry effluents was evaluated in FBBR in both batch and continuous mode. The bacterial consortium developed can effectively decolorize and degrade textile dyes in the FBBR into nontoxic compounds. Hence, this biological treatment can be considered potential technique for the treatment of textile dye-containing wastewater in industry.
