A REVIEW ON BIOREMEDIATION OF AZODYES USING MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM FROM DIFFERENT SOURCESKIRUTHIKA S. AND RAJENDRAN R.
The widespread industrialization and unconstrained growth of modern textile production facilities coupled with the lack of proper treatment facilities have proliferated the discharge of textile dye effluents enriched with toxic, recalcitrant, carcinogenic and mutagenic pollutants including dyes, metal ions, heavy metals, organic compounds, and other hazardous supplies. Therefore, the development of cost effective and efficient control methods against such pollution is vital to safeguard ecosystems and natural resources. In this regard, recent advances in science have propelled bioremediation as a potential alternative to conventional treatment methods. This review was structured to address bioremediation as a practical option for the treatment of textile dyes by evaluating its performance and typical attributes. It further highlights the present hurdles and future expectations for the removal of dye containing wastewaters via bioremediation techniques.
