This paper presents the review of the effects of bioremediation on the denim textile effluent using adapted bacterial cells immobilized on polyurethane foam. It further examines the various methods used in the biodecolorization of the industrial wastewater including the action of oxidative enzymes. Bacterial biofilms have great potential for the sustainable production of enzymes because of their high resistant, inherent characteristic of self immobilization and long term activity. It was also found that bacterial biofilm is widely used to treat textile wastewater because of the advantage derived from its ability to withstand under extreme conditions with their action of oxidoreductase enzymes.
