Biological decolourisation of textile effluent and heavy metal reduction of tannery effluents

The effluents released from textile and tanning industry poses a major concern pertaining specifically to environmental pollution. Evident contamination of water bodies as a result of continuous release of the effluents has proven to very toxic. The use of microbes plays a major role in decolorisation and heavy metal reduction of effluents (approximately 80-85%). Five microbial isolates such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Psuedomonas fluoroscens and Escherichia coli were found to give successful results.
