Lyngbya sp. BDU 9001 with coir pith and cyanobacterium culture with effluent alone were used to decolorize the textile dye effluent. The accuracy of 73% decolorization efficiency was performed through the spectral analysis at the 15th day of incubation in cyanobacteria and coir pith culture. The physiochemical parameters such as OD, pH, Temperature, Nitrite, Nitrate, Calcium, Magnesium, chlorophyll ‘a’, Protein were analyzed. The chlorophyll ‘a’ and protein content were increased and decolorized activity was further confirmed by the standard techniques of Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and, biological oxygen demand (BOD).

Keywords: Decolorization, Lyngbya with coir pith, textile dye effluent, analysis.
