Abstract

Dyes released by Textile industries pose threat to the Environmental safety. Recently dye decolourization through biological means such as biosorption has gained importance, as these are cheap and can be applied to treat wide range of effluents. In our studies the fungal decolourization has greater potential to be developed furtherly as a decentralised waste water treatment technology for small textile and dyeing industries. Malachite green, a basic dye which is highly toxic to the human system and which is extensively used in the textile, leather, cotton, wool and in pharmaceutical industries. In the present study we have studied the removal of toxic malachite green dye ions by using the fungal mass as a biosorbent through biosorption technique and we optimize the parameters for the maximum dye removal.
