    You can probably try growing strains of Chlorella, some strains of Dunaliella . I have worked with the Chlorella vulgaris strain it was actually used for the removal of lead (II) ions from wastewater. It also helped removing nutrients (N and P) from domestic wastewater.

    What type of waste water are you looking at and the scale of the project?
