Algae-based Wastewater Treatment

Treatment or remediation of wastewater using algae is called phycoremediation. There are two different systems of algae-based wastewater treatment. They are Waste Stabilization Pond Systems (WSPs) and High Rate Algal Ponds (HRAP), both of which are secondary treatment methods. In the first type, wastewater treatment is achieved by mutualistic growth of microalgae and heterotrophic bacteria. […]

Waste Water Already Contains Nutrients for Algae Growth! Is there a requirement of adding additional nutrients for growing algae?

Algae for its consistent growth requires sufficient amount of nutrients.  Since waste water already contains nitrogen, carbon and  phosphorous there is a speculation that the algae growing in waste water might not require any additional nutrients, however, research studies reveal that some amount of nutrient additions might be required. The necessary addition of nutrients also […]
