The main objective is to test the efficiency of partially purified alpha-amylase produced by Brevibacillus borostelensis R1 in automation dishwashing, laundry and to test the capabilities of partially purified alpha-amylase as desizing agent in textile industries. Submerged fermentation was used in alpha-amylase production. In textile industry, the alpha-amylase acted as a better desizing agent on sari, towel and navaar samples than caustic soda. Alpha-amylase together with the detergent proved to be more efficient to degrade the residues of starchy foods. The alpha-amylase was found to be useful in automation dishwashing and laundry industries.
