Bacterial isolates, obtained from dye-contaminated sludge, decolorized the toxic azo dye methyl red (MR). Enterobacter agglomerans was selected because of its bet- ter abilities to completely decolorize MR under aerobic conditions. Effects of physicoche- mical parameters (temperature, stirring, concentration of glucose and pH of the synthetic medium) on the MR decolorization by the selected bacterium were studied. Under optimal conditions, Enterobacter agglomerans completely decolorized 100 mg/l of MR within 6 h of incubation in synthetic medium. The high MR decolorization ability and low nutrient and environmental requirements of Enterobacter agglomerans enable this bacterium to be used in the biological treatment of industrial effluent containing azo dyes.
