Abstract:

Textile effluent is said to be one of the major sources of water pollution which contains various chemicals and hazardous wastes that contaminate the receiving water bodies. This study was conducted to study the efficiency of immobilized P.putida and B.licheniformis on decolorization of reactive dyes (RR 195, RO 72, RY 17, RB 36). Immobilization was done using sodium alginate and polyacrylamide gel beads both at static and shaken conditions. Sodium alginate immobilized bacteria exhibited maximum decolorization than that of polyacrylamide gel bead method.


Keywords: Textile effluent, P.Putida, B.Licheniformis, Immobilization
