Textile industry is considered as one of the largest generators of toxic chemical wastewater in Malaysia. Textile industries consume large volumes of water and chemicals for wet processing. Considering both volumes discharged and effluent composition, the wastewater generated by the textile industry is rated as the most polluting among all industrial sectors. The waste from the industrial wastewater can damage sewers and interfere with the operation of treatment plants. Textile wastewater includes a large variety of dyes and chemicals additions that make the environmental challenge for textile industry not only as liquid waste but also in its chemical composition. The biological treatment method has been proven effective and that can be used for various types of wastewater including recalcitrant chemical wastewater. Anaerobic technologies are a well-established technology that has significant advantages over other technologies available for textile wastewater treatment. Biological methods are generally cheap and simple to apply and are currently used to remove organics and colour from dyeing and textile wastewater. The aim of the project is to apply Bovine Rectal Bacteria (BRB) for treatments of textile wastewater with the removal of contaminants are focused on Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Sulphate (SO4) and Dissolved Oxygen (DO.) It is expected that bovine rectal bacteria are able to remove the quantified contaminants in textile wastewater and thus promoting a green technology in wastewater treatment.
