Textile industries are one of the major contaminators of water and soil. Sodium is the only major cation present in textile wastewater due to high consumption of sodium salts in processing units. Many aquatic macrophytes are successfully used for phytoremediation of contaminated water. An attempt has been made to test the potential of Salvinia molesta in reduction of sodium from textile effluent. The experimental study showed that Salvinia molesta is a suitable candidate for effective removal of sodium from textile wastewater.
