Bioremediation of Textile Wastewater (TWW) using microbial consortia has appeared as an emerging alternative for textile dyes removal. This review provides an updated literature on the application of microbial consortia in the treatment of TWWs, focusing on the mechanisms involved in dye biodegradation and the main interactions established between the consortia members and how they can influence dye removal efficiencies.
The review covers the different classifications of textile dyes and their characteristics, types of treatments available and the lst of microbes and teh respective dyes decolorized and degraded. It drwas attention to co-cultivated microorganisms that prove to have a significant efficiency in dye decolorization. Microbial consortia was found to be advantageous than pure cultures due to concerted metabolic activities of microbial community.
