Biodiversity and its application of cyanobacteria for the treatment of domestic and industrial effluents have received more attention during the recent years. Cyanobacteria have the capacity to utilize nitrogenous compounds, ammonia and phosphates; in addition, they accumulate metal ions such as Cr, Co, Cu and Zn very effectively. It has been observed that immobilized cyanobacteria have greater potential than its counterparts, i.e., free cells. Immobilization of cyanobacteria has been widely reported with considerable success. The present study focused attention on the review of papers potential application of cyanobacteria for the removal of heavy metal ions, nutrients, pesticide from the waste water of different effluents.
