Textile industries consume large quantities of water and chemicals, which are specified as process water. The textile process waters containing dyes have caused adverse problems for aquatic plants by reducing the light transmission and photosynthetic activity (Bayramoglu & Arica 2007; Akar et al. 2013; Adnan et al. 2015). Moreover, dyes in the water cause much bigger ecological problems and threat the many living things with toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects by accumulating in the aquatic organisms (Chaudhry et al. 2014; Chen et al. 2014; Din et al. 2016; Guo et al.
