Effect of egg waste treatment on the microbial load of textile dye effluent

Author(s): S.Ganesan, J.Alan Peterson, R.Murugan, A.J.Thatheyus

Samples of textile dye effluent collected from Chinnalapatti were analysed for the microbial load characteristics including bacterial, fungal and actinomycete count. Biotreatment of textile dye for 21 days with egg membrane and egg shell waste could reduce the microbial load especially that of actinomycetes and fungi. The advantages of egg wastes in the biotreament of textile dye effluent are discussed.
