Abstract

The textile effluent is a mixture of toxic synthetic recalcitrant dyes and is considered as a leading cause of environmental pollution. Hence, the release of untreated or partially treated textile wastewater drastically affects aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Several eco-friendly strategies are being developed for the effective management of environmental contamination happening due to textile wastewater. Among the different strategies, the use of microorganisms, plants, and their consortia is ascertaining to be an auspicious technique for degradation of hazardous textile dyes. In the present book chapter, we have reviewed the major toxic textile dyes being used in the textile industries with their acute and chronic adverse health effects. Furthermore, special attention is given to the recent advances in the management of textile effluent using biological consortia with respect to dye biodegradation, their microbial community interaction, and its impact on dye degradation.
