Many industries use synthetic dyes and pigments that may find their
way into natural waterways
. Reactive dyes, an anionic or cationic
dye, are most commonly used due to their provision of bright colors, excellent color fastness, and easy application. However, many reactive dyes are toxic to organisms and may cause direct harm to aquatic life.
Accumulation of these dyes in wastewater from industries such as
textiles, paper, cosmetics, rubber, and plastics has been regarded as a significant source of water pollution
. Discharge of colored
wastewater without proper treatment can results in numerous problems
such as chemical oxygen demand (COD) by the water body and an increase in toxicity.
