Abstract:

The present investigation revealed that the bioscouring process performed with the obtained optimal values was suitable for pre-treatment of cotton fabrics by pectinase secreted from the pectinolytic fungus, Paecilomyces variotii. The purified pectinase obtained from P. variotiiwas lyophilized and it was compared with the crude and commercial pectinase for bio scouring of cotton fibers in the textile industry. In textile application, prior to the bioscouring, cotton fabric was subjected to the pre-treatment with desizing to remove the impurities. Crude, purified and commercial pectinase were optimized for the bioscouring process and the results of the study revealed that the optimized conditions of pectinase for bioscouring on pre-treated cotton fabrics selected were 40% enzyme concentration, 4h treatment time, 40°C temperature and pH 5.0 respectively. Based on the results of the study it can be understood that the bioscouring process performed with these optimal values is suitable for pre-treatment of cotton fabrics.
