EFFECTIVE USAGE OF TEXTILE DYE HOUSE EFFLUENT FOR FABRIC DYEING BY BIOREMEDIATION

G.S. SIVAKUMAR AND R. PERUMAL RAJ

Abstract

The ability of fungal strains Phanerocheate sp and Tramets sp were optimized for growth and biomass production before using them for degradation of the dye effluent. These fungi were employed at different percentages by volume with standard nutrient concentration. The raw effluent was collected from S.S.Textile process, Tirupur and it was treated by Bioremediation process. The results were found to be pH from 10.1-7, TDS (Total dissolved solids) from 10,200-1000 mg/L producing 90.2% efficiency, TSS (Total suspended solids) from 5600-500 mg/L producing 90.5% efficiency, COD (Chemical oxygen demand) from 680-60 mg/L producing 91% efficiency and BOD (Biochemical oxygen demand) from 240-20 mg/L producing 92% efficiency. The treated product was found to be free from contaminants.
