Excretion- Getting rid of waste formed from the chemical reaction of the body, such as in urine, sweat. It is also the removal of toxic waste materials outside the body.

Egestion- Discharge or expulsion of undigested material from a cell in case of unicellular organisms, and from the digestive tract via the anus in case of multicellular organisms. It is also the removal of nitrogenous waste materials outside the body.

egestion is the removal of undigested food from the gut while excretion is the process of eliminating waste products of the metabolism and other other non-useful material.

Another word for egestion is defecation. Egestion should not be confused with excretion, as excretions can be in the form of urine and sweat also. Egestion is specific to removing waste via expulsion or digesting using the anus.
