WASTE WATER TREATMENT BY ALGAE
As many research works are going on in the field of wastewater treatment, a newly developed wastewater treatment by algae is gaining much importance. The algae selected for the study was Oedogonium and Chara sp. Various parameters like Biological oxygen demand (BOD), Chemical oxygen demand (COD), Ammonia Nitrogen and Phosphate were observed after the treatment. Percentage reduction rate of 59.61(BOD), 53.97 (COD) were observed. This is an environmentally safe alternative for treating wastewater.
