Degradation of toxic dyes by isolation and Development of Microbial consortia provides a comprehensive overview of the environmental impact of textile dye effluents, the historical usage of dyes, the classification of textile dyes, methods for textile dye removal, and the future prospects for enhancing dye biodegradation outcomes. It emphasizes the need for further research to improve dye biodegradation outcomes, including the identification of relevant microorganisms, experimental factor limitations, bioremediation sites, and degradation pathways prior to deploying microorganisms in the field. The document also discusses the characteristics of textile effluents, including the presence of various metals, dyes, and other contaminants, and the differences between simulated and real industrial wastewater. Additionally, it highlights the hazardous nature of industrial wastewater, particularly in terms of organic matter concentration and the presence of metals such as cadmium, lead, zinc, and chromium. The survey conducted to assess the biodegradability of industrial textile wastewater is also mentioned, focusing on specific conductivity, pH, TC, total phosphorus, total nitrogen, and chloride content. Overall, the document underscores the importance of understanding degradation pathways, environmental conditions, and kinetics influencing contaminant removal, and the need to ensure minimal harm to plants and aquatic life during the degradation process.
