Abstract

This work represents a review of applications of alkaline pectinases in textile processing and bioscouring of cotton fibers, the nature of pectin and pectic supstances, and production of alkaline pectinases from various microorganisms. Over the years alkaline pectinases have been used in several industrial processes, such as textile and plant fiber processing, paper and pulp industry, oil extraction, coffee and tea fermentations,poultry feed and treatment of industrial wastewater containing pectinacious material. The use of enzymes in the textile chemical processing is rapidly gaining globally recognition because of their non-toxic and eco-friendly characteristic with the increasingly important requirements for textile manufactures to reduce pollution in textile production. Furthermore, the use of pectinases in conjunction with amylases, lipases, cellulases and other hemicellulolytic enzymes to remove sizing agents is attractive because enzu=yes are highly specific and efficient, and work under mild conditions, that results in reduced the use of harsh chemicals in the textile industry, process times, energy and water savings and imo=proved product quality.
