Microbe-Mediated Degradation of Synthetic Dyes in Wastewater

Part of the Environmental Science and Engineering book series (ENVSCIENCE)

Abstract

In many parts of the world, the availability of clean water is today a crucial issue. Moreover, water polluted by the textile industry discharges has received an increased attention for several decades (Robinson et al. in Bioresour Technol 77:247–255, 2001). Water pollution mainly arises from the discharge of untreated or poorly treated effluents during dyeing and finishing processes.
