Indian Population is involved in textile industries, it releases 3500 different dyes. These dyes directly or indirectly are discharged into the environment, which infects the groundwater posing a hazard to the health and socio-economic life of the people. Therefore, the treatment of textile effluents is essential. Enzymes from plants have been stated to play a significant role in textile wastewater treatment applications.The present study deals with the extraction of crude enzyme extracts from A. paeoniifolius corm and treatment of textile industry effluents and textile red dye with the help of extracted enzyme. The extracted crude enyme from A. paeoniifolius found to help in reducing the various textile water parameters like pH, BOD, DO, TDS, turbidity etc. After 24 hr of treatment by crude enzyme on textile wastewater BOD decreased 82.4%, DO (35.1%), TDS (17.80%), pH (32.70%) and turbidity by 12.24% whereas BOD (50%), DO (14.2%) pH (4.15%) and turbidity by 10% decreased of Red CE textile dye with same duration of treatment. The crude enzyme extract of A. paeoniifolius may offer an economical alternative to replace or supplement the treatment processes for the removal of dyes from wastewater effluents.
