Summary

Recent Advances in Decolorization and Degradation of Dyes in Textile Effluent by Biological Approaches outlines various eco-friendly, cost effective methods for removal of toxic textile dyes. Large amount of dyes is unbound and release into environment due to inefficient dying process. The release of dye containing wastewater into environment has several adverse effects as it is toxic, mutagenic and has other undesirable effects on living organisms. Hence, it is necessary to remove these dyes from industrial effluents for sustainable environment. This book deals with conventional as well as advanced treatment methods for removal of dyes in order of their effectiveness that increases the domain knowledge of readers.

Salient Features:

  • Describes physico-chemical characteristics of textile effluent, dye classes and toxicity of dyes commonly used in textile industry
  • Assembles effective approaches which are used to remove dyes from textile effluent prior to their release into environment
  • Presents several advanced approaches such as genetic engineering, nanotechnology, immobilized cells or enzyme, biofilms and microbial fuel cells etc. for removal of dyes
