Effective Treatment Systems for Azo Dye Degradation: A Joint Venture between Physico-Chemical & Microbiological Process

  title={Effective Treatment Systems for Azo Dye Degradation: A Joint Venture between Physico-Chemical \& Microbiological Process},
  author={M. Shah},
Practically most of the accepted physico-chemical and biological techniques have been explored for treatment of extremely recalcitrant dye wastewater; none, however, has emerged as a panacea. A single universally applicable end-of-pipe solution appears to be unrealistic, and combination of appropriate techniques is deemed imperative to devise technically and economically feasible options. An in-depth evaluation of wide range of potential hybrid technologies delineated in literature along with… Expand
