Import into RefWorks 1. Introduction Rapid industrialization has necessitated the manufacture and use of different chemicals in day to day life Moorthi et al. The textile industry is one of them which extensively use synthetic chemicals as dyes. Wastewaters from textile industries pose a threat to the environment, as large amount of chemically different dyes are used.
A significant proportion of these dyes enter the environment via wastewater. Approximately 10, different dyes and pigments are used industrially and over 0. Pollution due to textile industry effluent has increased during recent years. The textile finishing generates a large amount of waste water containing dyes and represents one of the largest causes of water pollution Bhatti HN et al.
The traditional textile finishing industry consumes about liters of water to process about 1 Kg of textile material.
The new closed-loop technologies such as the reuse of microbial or enzymatical treatment of dyeing effluents could help reducing this enormous water pollution Abadull E et al. Azo dyes have been used increasingly in industries because of their ease and cost effectiveness in synthesis compared to natural dyes.
However, most azo dyes are toxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic Pinherio HM et al. Azo bonds present in these compounds are resistant to breakdown, with the potential for the persistence and accumulation in the environment Talarposhti et al. Several physico-chemical techniques have been proposed for treatment of colored textile effluents.
All these physical or chemical methods are very expensive and result in the production of large amounts of sludge, which creates the secondary level of land pollution. Therefore, economic and safe removal of the polluting dyes is still an important issue.
Bioremediation through microorganisms has been identified as a cost effective and environment friendly alternative for disposal of textile effluent Chen KC et al. In recent years a number of studies have focused on some microorganisms capable of degrading and absorbing dyes from wastewater.
A wide variety of microorganisms are reported to be capable of decolonization of dyes Chen KC et al. The current study has evaluated the potential of isolated bacterial strain from textile effluent for their decolorization efficiency of the textile dye, Remazol Black B under in vitro conditions and optimization of the factors influencing the process.
Sampling and Analysis of Effluent The Effluent sample was collected from the middle point of the area. Standard procedures Spot and Grab were followed during sampling. The Temperature and pH were determined at the sampling site.
The pH was determined by using pH meter and temperature with laboratory thermometer. Sample colour was analysed by spectrophotometer. Nutrient broth gL—1Peptone-5, Meat extract-1, Yeast extract- 2, NaCl-5, pH-7 A stock solution of the dye mgL—1 was prepared in de-ionized water and used for all studies.
Isolation, Screening and Identification of Dye Decolorizing Bacteria from Effluent The textile effluent was collected in sterile collection tubes from the sludge and wastewater of the ditches at industrial site located in Ankleshwar Textile Industries, Gujarat, India.
The sample collected from the textile mill was screened for azo dye Remazol Black B decolorizing bacterial strains by inoculating 10 ml. Erlenmeyer flask containing ml.
After 48h of incubation, 1. The Morphologically distinct bacterial isolates showing clear zones around their colonies due to decolorization of dye were selected for further studies.
These isolates were screened for their ability to decolorize Remazol Black B in liquid culture. The Screening process in liquid media was carried out by inoculating a loop full of cultures exhibiting clear zones into Nutrient broth containing Remazol Black B under static conditions.
After 24h of incubation, 1ml.
The Screening procedure in liquid medium was continued until complete decolorization of broth. A small amount of decolorized broth was transferred to nutrient agar plates containing Remazol Black B mgL—1. The bacterial isolate which tolerated higher concentration of the Azo dye was isolated by streak plate method.
The Azo dye decolorizing bacteria was identified from several aspects including morphology characters, biochemical tests as described in Bergey's manual of determinative bacteriology Indole, Methyl Red, Voges-Proskauer test, Citrate, Catalase, Oxidase, Nitrate Reduction test, Hydrolysis of Casein, Starch, Urea and Gelatin.
Assimilation of various sugars such as D-glucose, D-fructose, galactose, mannitol and D-maltose as sole carbon source was determined by inoculating the isolate into carbohydrate broth supplemented with respective carbon source.
Decolorization Assay The decolorizing activity was expressed in terms of the percentage decolorization by the modified method described previously Deepak et al.Technical Reports, Theses, and Public Documents search: All Technical Reports, Theses, and Public Documents 92 technical report/s 6 thesis/es 12 public document/s 4 outreach document/s Technical Report/s.
