Abstract

In India Rivers, lakes and oceans have become the out let for sewage and many other pollutants, such as phenols, dyes, detergents, pesticides, insecticide and heavy metals. Dyes in industrial water are visible pollutants that are difficult to treat due to their complex molecular nature and synthetic origin. Some dyes are metabolites with mutagenic or carcinogenic effect. In textile effluent color is the first contaminant to be removed from the waste water before it is discharged into the water body or onto land. In the present study textile effluent is decolorized. The study is supported by SEM topography.
