Abstract Coimmobilization of the freshwater microalga Chlorella vulgaris in alginate beads with the microalgae growth-promoting bacterium Azospirillum brasilense under semi-continuous synthetic wastewater culture conditions significantly increased the removal of ammonium and soluble phosphorus ions compared to immobilization of the microalgae alone. In continuous or batch cultures removal of these ions followed a similar trend but was less efficient than in semi-continuous culture. It is proposed that coimmobilization of a microalgae with microalgae growth-promoting bacteria can serve as a tool in devising novel wastewater treatments.
