Abstract
Textile desizing involves the removal of starch from the fabric on which it serves as the strengthening agent to prevent breaking of the warp thread during the weaving process. After weaving the cloth, the starch has to be removed before the dyeing process for efficient dye absorption by the cloth fibres. Chemical desizing has been long used and has been associated with increase in chemical pollutants in the textile industry effluent. Enzymes, particularly, amylases are instead being used nowadays as effective textile desizer, thereby decreasing the environment pollution attributed to textile industry effluent. The present study was undertaken to study amylases of indigenously isolated fungal strains to select the best amylase producer, which was further characterized for production of crude amylases under optimum conditions of solid state fermentation using cheap lignocellulosic substrate. Subsequently, the crude amylases produced under optimized conditions of SSF were checked for its efficacy in textile desizing. The crude amylase preparation successfully desized the textile fabric by 73% at an incubation temperature of 70oC, and incubation time of 60 mins. The crude amylase preparation was stable at high temperature and pH and retained about 25% of its maximum activity at a temperature of 80oC and about 50% of its maximum activity at a pH of 8.0, thereby adding to its successful application under harsh conditions of temperature and pH prevalent during industrial textile desizing. The use of cheap lignocellulosic substrate for enzyme production further makes the process economical.
